Roma Youth & Reserves

Nicola Zalewski Named to 2022 European Golden Boy Shortlist

The 20-year-old Polish international's dream start continues, as Zalewski made the final 20-man shortlist for the European Golden Boy Award.

Ranking Roma's Youth, #1: Nicolò Zaniolo

No surprises here. For the fourth-straight year, Nico takes the top spot!

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #2: Roger Ibañez

Next up in our Top 10 U-23 countdown is center-back Roger Ibañez. In his last year of eligibility and for the second year running, Roger comes in at #2 in our U-23 countdown.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #3: Nicola Zalewski

Nicola Zalewski stepped up when Leonardo Spinazzola’s injury left a gaping hole in Roma’s left flank. The only question now: where can he go from here?

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #4: Marash Kumbulla

Roma’s 22-year-old center-back enters his third season in the capital and this one could make or break his Roma career. But make no mistake: this kid is incredibly talented.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #5: Cristian Volpato

He’s the star of Francesco Totti’s agency. Can he become a star at the Roman legend’s former club too?

Ranking Roma’s Youth #6: Edoardo Bove

Roma’s baby-faced midfielder looks set to be a consistent part of José Mourinho’s rotations this season. The real question is: can he force his way into the starting eleven?

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #7: Riccardo Calafiori

The Roman’s star took a hit last season, but at just 20 years old there’s plenty of time for him to rebound.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #8: Felix Afena-Gyan

Next up in our Top 10 U-23 countdown is young Felix Afena-Gyan. We all remember the night in Genoa, but this kid should provide Roma fans with plenty more reasons to smile in the future. Young Felix clocks in at #8 in our U-23 countdown.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #9: Giacomo Faticanti

The youngest player in our 2022 rankings looks to have all the tools to eventually become an important member of Roma’s first team.

Ranking Roma's Youth, #10: Mile Svilar

We still don't know much about this kid, but he's got great hair and if all goes according to plan, he could be Roma’s netminder the next decade. If not, well, he still has great hair.

Zalewski, Bove, and Afena-Gyan Nominated for 2022 Golden Boy Award

Nicola Zalewski, Edoardo Bove and Felix Afena-Gyan all received nominations, but is this the year a Roma player takes home the award?

Alberto De Rossi Named Roma's New Head of Youth Coach Development

No, he's not coaching the kids anymore, but Alberto De Rossi's imprint will remain on Roma's youth ranks now that he's taking on an advisory role with the club.

Official: Roma Extends Contracts Of Bove, Darboe, and Zalewski

It’s paycheck time for several Primavera graduates, as three of Roma’s most exciting prospects are given multi-year contracts.

Scouting Potential Landing Spots for Roma’s Bryan Reynolds

With José Mourinho not giving him many chances, it’s likely that Roma’s second American signing ever will be going out on loan this winter. The question is: where to?

Ranking Roma Women's Youth, #1: Annamaria Serturini

Roma's all-time leader in appearances and goals scored just happens to be the best U-23 player on the squad. Expect big things for Annamaria Serturini this season and beyond.

Ranking Roma's Youth, #1: Nicolò Zaniolo

Shocker, right? There could be no other player to top our list of Roma's best U-23 talents.

Ranking Roma Women's Youth, #2: Angelica Soffia

Size, strength, speed, technique and intelligence. The kid once known more for her curly hair is primed to breakout in a BIG way this season.

Ranking Roma's Youth, #2: Roger Ibañez

Strong? Yup. Fast? You bet. Technical? Mhmm. Roger Ibañez is the perfect defender in the making, and the second best U-23 player in Rome.

Ranking Roma Women’s Youth, #3: Benedetta Glionna

The new kid on the block could, in time, be one of the best players Roma and Italy have to offer.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #3: Gonzalo Villar

Roma’s #3 prospect has seen the transfer rumors swirl around him recently, but that doesn’t take away from what he’s already brought to the Giallorossi.

Ranking Roma Women's Youth, #4: Tecla Pettenuzzo

Center-back or defensive midfielder in the making? Tecla Pettenuzzo has no shortage of paths to the top.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #4: Ebrima Darboe

Roma’s need for instant results works against Darboe’s biggest strengths, but he has to give himself more options.

Ranking Roma Women's Youth, #5: Giada Greggi

With her ACL injury in the past, Giada Greggi seems poised to reclaim her place among Roma and Italy's top young talents.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #5: Marash Kumbulla

Kumbulla didn’t have the start to his Roma career that Romanisti hoped for, but he’s still just 21 years old and has the potential to become a top end center back for years to come.

Ranking Roma Women’s Youth, #6: Alice Corelli

Corelli’s ability to shield the ball means she’s one of the first names off the bench at still only 17 years of age.

Ranking Roma’s Youth, #6: Matias Viña

Viña might be new to the Seven Hills of Rome, but a lot is riding on him transitioning to Serie A quickly.

Ranking Roma Women’s Youth, #7: Eleonora Pacioni

Roma’s U-19 captain led her side to two consecutive league titles. Can Pacioni make the jump to senior football?

Ranking Roma's Youth, #7: Carles Pérez

Carles Pérez has all the physical tools but hasn't quite figured out how to use them to his advantage. Could this be the year Pérez finally comes good?

Ranking Roma Women’s Youth, #8: Serena Landa

Out with an ACL injury but not forgotten, Landa could yet be the future Capocannoniere that Roma needs.
