Genoa winger Diego Perotti signs for Roma on loan

Roma have beaten the transfer deadline to sign Argentine winger Diego Perotti on loan from Genoa.

The 27-year-old will represent the Giallorossi until June 2017 but could make his deal at the Stadio Olimpico permanent if Roma pay Genoa €9 million.

A statement published on Roma's official website confirmed Perotti, who has also played for Sevilla, had completed a medical with the Serie A club on Monday.

"It's a pleasure to be here at such a great club like Roma," he told Roma TV. "It's a huge step for my career and I'm really pleased.

"I don't like talking about myself too much, I'd prefer it for the fans to describe me. I always try to give 100 percent -- sometimes I play well or I might make mistakes but I will always give it everything I have.

"I've always felt more comfortable on the left, but I've played in the hole at Genoa and I've also played on the right. The main thing is that I want to play and make myself available for the team."
