The midfielder's representative, Federico Pastorello, claims his client is recovering from an injury and is ready to bounce back.
He told Calciomercato.it: “He has no problems of acclimatisation, or physical problems.
"He has not played because according to coach Montella he is a little 'back in physical condition' because he didn't do the physical training with the others as he was still recovering from injury.
“He played only two friendly games since he arrived. His time is coming soon."
