Sassuolo's Lorenzo Pellegrini set for Roma return

Lorenzo Pellegrini
Lorenzo Pellegrini, 21, has made 11 under-21 appearances for Italy and has one senior cap.

Lorenzo Pellegrini confirmed on Tuesday that he will be moving from Sassuolo back to boyhood club Roma.

Speaking after Italy's 3-1 European Under-21 Championship semifinal loss to Spain, the midfielder said that he was close to sealing a return to the Stadio Olimpico where he will meet up with former Sassuolo boss Eusebio Di Francesco.

"I will go now and sign for Roma in the hotel," Pellegrini told reporters after the match.

"I am returning to Roma in order to play my chances. I want to be a protagonist, of course then the coach and club will decide.

"The Euros went well, but we hoped to reach the final."

Pellegrini is a Roma youth academy product. The 21-year-old joined Sassuolo two years ago, but Roma are believed to have activated a buy-back clause worth €10 million.
