“It is a big move but I’m just trying to prove why I’m there,” he said.

“My friends have been saying to me: ‘Do you realise you’re at AS Roma?’ I’m just trying to keep calm.”

Alemanji was born in Germany but moved to England at the age of three.

The teenager had only been with Cambridge for three years after an intial six-week trial as a 13-year-old.

Alemanji shares an agent with former Manchester United and current Lyon star Memphis Depay.
