As reported by various outlets in Italy, Il Faraone will sign his contract with the Giallorossi after the completion of his medicals. He is also expected to join the team's training in the afternoon.

Hopefully, his transfer to Roma will help him find some playing time again. It seems that this time the 23-year-old winger will be in the best situation possible, since Roma's only natural left winger, Gervinho, is close to signing for a Chinese club, leaving his spot open for El Shaarawy. Increased visibility will earn him the chance to secure Antonio Conte's call for the European championship this summer.

In bocca al lupo, Faraone!
