Rovella Will Stay With Genoa for the Remainder of the Season

The talented midfielder is one of Serie A’s brightest prospects and is a regular for Italy U21s. Rovella only turned 19 last month but he set to join the reigning Serie A champions.

Juventus will sign him up and loan him immediately back to Genoa. He has featured nine times for struggling Genoa this season, starting seven times, but he is yet to score or create a goal. However, he is proving to be an important player as Genoa battle relegation.

Rovella is a very accomplished passer of the ball even at 19. He is calm and composed in the heart of the midfield and certainly has plenty of talent. Juventus will keep an eye on him for the rest of the season before he joins up with them in the summer.

His performances for the rest of the season will allow Juventus to assess his best role and the abilities he can offer the team. He is raw at 19, but Juventus will be confident he can be a key player in years to come. Rovella is highly thought of by the Italian national side having impressed for the U21s. Andrea Pirlo and Roberto Mancini will be monitoring his progress at Genoa.

Rovella will be a regular for Genoa for the rest of the campaign. His performances will be vital to their chances of staying in Serie A.

They are outside the relegation zone after beating Bologna this weekend but are still hovering nervously above the drop.
