Official: Roma lose highly-rated youngster to PSV

It’s now official: Roma have lost highly-rated striker Gianluca Scamacca to PSV.

Scamacca, who recently turned 16 years of age, decided against returning to Trigoria after the new year in hopes of finding a club that could offer him top-flight football as Liverpool, Southampton, and several Dutch clubs stepped forward in hopes of luring the player, but it was PSV who were able to convince the player to join. The Dutch club have paid €270,000 for the player, who will begin immediately with the club.
