The 24-year-old will join the Serie A side until the end of the season on loan with no obligation or option to buy written into the deal. That said should he excel, it will be likely that the move would be made permanent. The loan fee will be in the region of £2m.
The Hale End graduate has made 132 appearances for the first team as well as scoring three goals.
