El Shaarawy with a possibility to start vs Spezia

Stephan El Shaarawy’s recent recovery from a calf injury could now propel him to the starting eleven in the upcoming weekend fixture against a lowly Spezia side, reports Leggo.

The Italian winger’s season started off well with El Shaarawy cementing himself as a reliable option off the bench, but was eventually cut short by a series of injuries that have kept him sidelined for the majority of the past few months.

Moreover, rumors have surfaced placing the 29-year-old among the names destined to leave in the summer.

According to the newspaper, the match against Spezia could be a good opportunity for El Shaarawy to prove his worth once again and replace Matías Viña in the starting line-up, were Roma to deploy once more a 3-5-2 formation.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eldor Shomurodov are expected to be called-up, offering Mourinho more attacking options.
