Sabatini: Lamela can be new Pastore

The man who brought Javier Pastore to Italy while working at Palermo has claimed that new Roma signing Erik Lamela can make the same impact on Serie A.

Walter Sabatini, who now works as sporting director at Roma, has been credited with finding Pastore at Huracan and has now worked his second South American deal in order to bring the highly-rated River Plate star Lamela to the Eternal City.

"Bringing [Pastore] to Italy when I worked at Palermo is one of my biggest successes. He has really made an impact in Serie A," he told Il Corriere dello Sport. "He's a very special player, but he will not move to Roma this summer.

"I have already said it before that Roma have made a big coup on the transfer market. Lamela can do for Roma what Pastore has done for Palermo in the past two seasons."

Meanwhile, fellow new signing Bojan has spoken of his desire to emulate ex-Barca team-mate Thierry Henry and Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, who both wore No. 14 with distinction.

"I chose No. 14 because the other numbers were taken, and plus it is a shirt which was worn by great players like Cruyff and my great friend Henry," Bojan told Roma Channel. "I want to think about Roma and work with Luis Enrique as he determined my move here, and I want to thank him.

"Pep Guardiola is [in] the past. I want to think about the present and I am happy to have joined Roma."
