The 26-year-old Albanian is now aiming to start in the upcoming Derby della Capitale against the Giallorossi on Sunday night, hoping to finally return to playing consistently.

His current contract expires with the club at the end of next season and rumours are suggesting that he’ll be departing this summer, but there is still time for his fortunes to change, especially if he continues to perform well in the remaining games of the season.
