Roma have been hit by the news Diego Perotti faces another spell on the sidelines because of a calf injury.
The 30-year-old Argentina international, who joined the Giallorossi from Italian Serie A rivals Genoa in the 2016 winter transfer window, has endured a frustrating season to date.
Having missed the cut for his country’s World Cup campaign in Russia, Perotti then suffered a sprained ankle to keep him out of the opening matches, before he then succumbed to a thigh injury.
He has managed just three appearances to date, but now faces more time out after pulling up in training with a calf injury.
The length of Perotti’s absence is not yet known but will become clearer following a scan on his calf.
