The fallen Argentine giants have reportedly agreed to sell the 19-year-old following their relegation and a deal has seemingly been done.

Italian reports on Friday suggested Lamela was to undergo a medical in the Italian capital before putting pen to paper on a five-year contract with Roma.

However, Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini was cautious when speaking of the potential transfer.

He told Corriere dello Sport: "The deal is not done yet.

"We cannot make it official even though there is optimism in the air and I feel it as well.

"There is a strong possibility that he will come to Roma but he is still a River Plate player.

"Right now I would say there is a 50 percent chance he will come to Roma."

The player himself has already said goodbye to the River fans via Twitter.

He wrote: "I love you all. I thank you for the support you've always given, helping me grow day by day. I will never forget you."
