AS Roma expect summer signing Erik Lamela to be in Italy tomorrow.

Roma beat a host of European rivals to land the former River Plate midfielder.

Lamela, an attacking midfielder, has been back in South America competing in the recent Under-20 World Cup.

Speculation suggests that Lamela won't be used for the Week 1 trip to Bologna, but he'll be ready for the Week 2 home tie against Cagliari.
