Young Italian striker Alessandro Rossi has not been given too much space in Lazio this season. Halfway through the year, he has only made two appearances; they both came in the Europa League¬†for a total of 47 minutes. To not further hinder his development, the Biancoceleste are said to be willing to allow the 21-year-old to leave on loan for the remainder of the season. Tutto Pescara Calcio¬†claims that President Claudio Lotito has approved Alessandro Rossi’s prospective loan move to the Serie B and that in addition, the young striker will also prolong his contract with Lazio in the next few days.

At Pescara, former Lazio midfielder Luca Crecco is present – he transferred to the club this past summer which can be an additional factor in the move. The club currently sits in third place behind Brescia and Palermo with 32 points; they have scored 29 goals whilst conceding 23.
