Algerian midfielder Houssem Aouar is back in the Italian capital after his brief stint in AFCON with the national team.

Following Algeria’s elimination from the competition, Aouar has returned to Rome and began training with the rest of the team ahead of the match with Salernitana.

On Thursday, the player met for the first time with new Roma head coach Daniele De Rossi.

In the absence of Leandro Paredes on Monday – as the Argentine midfielder faces one round of suspension – Aouar is expected to be back in Roma’s line-up, reports Il Tempo.

Aouar is reportedly 100% fit and ready to go and could slot into De Rossi’s system as soon as Monday evening in Salerno.
