Pescara take Riccardi from Roma

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.
