Stephan El Shaarawy Finally Completes his Move to the Italian Capital as He Joins A.S Roma on Loan with a purchase option of €13m to make this move permanent. Stephan El Shaarawy has arrived in Rome ahead of his expected loan move to Roma from AC Milan. The winger returned to Italy after playing for Monaco in the first half of the season, though he failed to score in 15 Ligue 1 appearances. The 23- Year Old Winger looks to rejuvenate his career under newly appointed tactical wizard Spalletti. He didn’t make his expected impact in France when he was loaned out to AC Monaco despite some brief brilliance displayed in the Europa league he struggled mightily to make a real impact. In the 2012/2013 season he was sensational at only 20 years old he scored 19 goals in all completions including 16 in league play. it appeared AC Milan found the next Italian superstar but it never happened in the way they would of liked the next season he would only play in 9 games the following season. Over the next two seasons he only make a total 29 appearances For Milan a large part due to injuries. In 2013 surgery on his right foot failed to heal effectively, El Shaarawy was ruled out for over ten weeks that season. El Shaarawy is still a player with a great deal of potential that could make an Immediate impact for the Italian Giants. Roma are not in an ideal league position at the moment having only one win in their last 5 in 5th with 35 points being 10 points behind Juventus and 12 Points behind league leaders Napoli they have pretty much kissed their title hopes good bye with last weekends close 1-0 loss the Juventus which puts them in a dog fight with Fiorentina & Inter Milan for the 3rd and final champions league spot. The one positive is they advanced to the Round Of 16 Of the Champions League they will play Real Madrid on February 18th. El Shaarawy’s arrival couldn’t have come at a better a talented Roma are in need of a star I believe he will recapture his form and be a hugely impactful player for Roma. With the Departure of Gervinho to Chinese side Hebei China on a 18M transfer after three years with Roma leaves an open gab that El Shaarawy will be set to fill. Bourmouth were also set to be interested but the Winger preferred the Roma Switch he will joined his teammates on Thursday after flying to Rome earlier in the week. The 23-Year-old is very excited for the opportunity . He spoke on the matter last night. “I feel ready, and I hope to give my contribution,” El Shaarawy told fans and media as he arrived at Fiumicino airport. “I think there’s not much to talk about, and a lot of work to be done. I’m fired-up, motivated and enthusiastic. “I hope to give my contribution in this delicate period.”
The Former Serie A Young Player Of the Year surely brings a new level of excitement to the Olimpico. A player that AC Milan has completely given up on. This gives Roma another explosive option in the fight for the final champions league spot which is drastically important because they could be forced to sell Miralem Pjanić who is arguably their very best player. The 23-year-Old still desires to make the Italian national team roster in the Summer for the Euros in France. He has been given platform to achieve that there’s no reason why he can’t find success in Rome. He is one of the most promising Italian players in the world he has the ability to become a world class player he belongs in Serie A he is a player that can be a stand out star in this league once again I think Spalletti impact on him will really help him get to that level once again. He’s been involved with the Italian national team since 2012 he’s already been capped for the Italian National team on 17 occasions scoring 2 goals for Italy. Euro 2016 would be the 1st major tournament he has been a part of. A good rest of the year with Roma would do wonders in his chance to represent Italy in the summer. Making the Champions league is the most important thing for Roma I believes he could be missing piece of the puzzle.
He made his Debut in Roma’s important 3-1 against Frosinone as well as getting the start. He Returned to Serie A in Style giving the Roma faithful of what’s to come. In 48th Minute in a 1-1 game El Shaarawy scored an absolutely stunning goal that will be candidate for the goal of the season a ball coming in from New signing Ervin Zukanovic El Shaarawy put home the connection between the two new signings with a unbelievable acrobatically back-heel past the keeper. A goal that would have left Zlatan Ibrahimovic impressed Roma’s new Signing said that Zlatan inspired his wonder goal the two of them played together from 2010-2012 at AC Milan. His goal did not go unnoticed his goal was impressive enough to Earned the #2 spot on SportsCenter top 10 plays of the day in the United Staes given the fact that Soccer is not popular in the US. Roma’s recent win snapped the slide as Roma picked up their 1st win in Five games Spalletti earned his 1st win in his return to the bench. In addition to the Roma’s Victory Fiorentina dropped points against Genoa and Inter loss to AC Milan in the derby puts Roma in great position to capture the champions league’s final spot with the competition struggling it gives Roma a real chance to go on a hot streak. it’s going to be dog fight till the end for the last spot but I feel optimistic about Roma’s chances.
In addition to El Shaarawy & Ervin Zukanovic Coming a deal for Genoa Winger Diego Perotti its nearly finished he arrived in Rome this afternoon to complete the move his expected to undergo his medical & should be officially completed within 24 hours. After a on and off deal He agreed to join he said goodbye to thank Genoa fans, Roma will pay € 1 million for the 27-year-old loan, but they have an option to make his Olimpico move permanent for a fee of € 9 million at the end of the current campaign. With El Shaarawy & Perotti it will give Roma two other explosive options on the wing along with Current Players such as Mohammad Salah & Miralem Pjanić this gives them a very deep midfield which could end up being a key success and with the champions league round of 16 Vs Real Madrid they need every advantage they can get. The idea is that Roma will likely purchase all three of the players they signed during the window.
El Shaarawy signing will prove to be a very good one for the Italian giants he’s already made a name for himself and he will continue to do so.
