Roma: El Shaarawy medical tomorrow?

Stephan El Shaarawy will arrive in Rome tonight, before having his Roma medical tomorrow.

The winger is close to completing a loan move from Milan, with Rossoneri CEO Adriano Galliani confirming earlier today that the deal is “on the home straight”.

Now Sky is reporting that El Shaarawy will fly into Rome at 20.15 local time [19.15 GMT] tonight, before having his medical tomorrow.

The Italian international had spent the first half of the season on loan at Monaco, but the principality side have frozen him out after 24 appearances, as they’d have to buy him if he played 25 games.

With Gervinho set for a move to China, El Shaarawy is expected to be his replacement, with the Lupi having the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
