The Biancocelesti forward is not part of Vladimir Petkovic’s plans for the coming season, and is likely to be shown the exit door at Stadio Olimpico.

As such, according to Calcio News the 24-year-old could be on his way to either Turkey or England.

Besiktas have already submitted a loan bid for the goalscorer, with the right to sign outright – but that has been rejected by president Claudio Lotito.

Paolo Di Canio’s Sunderland are also another option for the Czech Republic international, and they could be on the verge of making a €6m (£5.1m) offer.
