Pescara sign Ali Sowe on loan

The 20-year-old striker re-joined Chievo after his loan deal at relegated Serie B side SS Juve Stabia came to an end last season but has been quickly dashed out to another Serie B club to see out another loan deal until the end of the season.

A statement on Chievo’s official website reads: “AC Chievo Verona announces that Ali Sowe is going on loan to Pescara. Last season Sowe made 35 appearances and scored five goals for Juve Stabia in Serie B.”

Sowe, who is the Gambia’s first export to sign for a Serie A side after Alhagie Bun Gaye of GPA tried without success in 2009, caught the eye of Chievo’s scouts during an international U-19 tournament staged in Umbria, Italy. At the time he was with the Gambian junior team in May 2012.

The 6ft 3in forward made his senior team debut for Gambia during the Scorpions second leg match with Algeria in the qualifiers for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
