A surprise move as the Neroverdi purchase Riccardo Cappa from Roma.
The 18-year old striker from Latina made headlines in the UEFA Youth League when he scored against Atletico Madrid, now he’s off to fight for a first team spot with Sassuolo.
Roma and Sassuolo are almost like trading partners. Frequently, young Romans will head up north to Emilia-Romagna to develop, such as Lorenzo Pellegrini, Matteo Politano and Luca Mazzitelli. Riccardo Cappa should be no different, and if trends hold, he could be back in Giallorosso in a matter of years.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Sassuolo have purchased him outright, not a loan.
