Reports suggest Roma will use this weekend’s game with Milan to discuss Stephan El Shaarawy.
The Italian international joined Monaco on loan from the Rossoneri this summer, with mandatory buyout clause once he played 25 games.
However, after 24 appearances for the principality side, Les Rouges et Blancs have decided they don’t wish to take the forward permanently.
The Giallorossi have been linked with a move for El Shaarawy, as they must replace Juan Iturbe who has joined Bournemouth in the English Premier League.
SportMediaset reports that sporting director Walter Sabatini will meet with Milan CEO Adriano Galliani when the Diavolo visit Stadio Olimpico on Saturday, to evaluate the possibility of a deal.
It’s thought the Lupi will offer a six month loan, with a clause of €12m to make the deal permanent, based on a set number of apperances.
Fiorentina and Genoa are also thought to be keen on El Shaarawy, while Bournemouth could look to take him to England.
