Pescara have signed Roma and Italy starlet Alessio Riccardi on loan with an option to buy.
Pescara’s official website states Roma have first refusal on Riccardi next summer.
The 19-year-old made his senior debut for the Giallorossi in January 2019, playing eight minutes of a 4-0 win against Virtus Entella in the Coppa Italia.
However, they remain his only minutes in a Lupi shirt and the former Juventus target will now look to progress his career with the Delfini.
Riccardi is prolific at youth level for Italy, with eight goals in 21 Under-20 caps.
Pescara have a strong record with young players, giving the likes of Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne, Marco Verratti and Mattia Perin the platform to break through.
They only just survived relegation from Serie B last season and are coached by Massimo Oddo, who recently embarked on his second spell in charge.
