Agent: ‘El Shaarawy news soon’

Stephan El Shaarawy’s agent ‘expects news soon’ on a possible move and says ‘the Euros are very important to him’.

The 23-year-old was reportedly close to a move to Roma yesterday, with Fiorentina now linked and Genoa also a possibility.

With interest in the 23-year-old high and having lost his place in the Monaco team, El Shaarawy could favour a move in order to increase his chances of securing a place in Italy’s Euro 2016 squad.

“He started well with Monaco, he was always in shape but then he was lacking chemistry with the Coach,” agent Maneul Pastorello told Il Messaggero.

“The Euros are very important to him and he wants to repay Conte’s faith. We’re expecting some news soon.”
