Empoli join the race to sign Salih Ucan
Empoli have joined the race to sign Salih Ucan on loan from Roma this month according to Sky Sports Italy.
The Azzurri have turned their attention towards Salih after failing to land Riccardo Saponara from AC Milan.
Uçan is currently on a two-year loan at Roma from Fenerbahce.
However the Turkish international’s agent Ömer Koray Uzun has dismissed reports linking his client with a move away form the club.
“Everyday there is a new rumour about Salih leaving on loan,” Uzun said.
“Salih will not be returning to Fenerbahçe, he is at Roma for two seasons.
“Salih is a long term project, he is working hard on and off the field and will get his chance.
“The club has no intention to sell or send him out on loan.
Uçan has played just three minutes of Serie A football this season for Roma.
The 20-year-old midfielder is currently on a two-year loan at Roma, the Italian club have the option to sign the talented playmaker at any time during the loan.
