Local football club Gamtel has signed its part in a deal that will see Ali Sowe make a permanent switch to Italy.
A deal for the Gambia striker look imminent after Ali passed a medical with the Serie A side last week.
Sowe is a transfer target for the Italian outfit but club advisers have given the would-be Gambia international time space for his inconsistent blood pressure reading due to difficulties in acclimatizing with the freezing European weather.
Gamtel coach Tapha Manneh revealed to Foroyaa Sports that Gamtel have signed their part in the deal and are now waiting on Chievo for a final clearance after reaching an agreement.
"We are waiting for the club because we have already signed our part of the deal. They gave us papers and we signed so we waiting for them." Gamtel gaffer and twice Supercup and FA winner, Tapha Manneh said.
Ali will be Gambia's first export to sign for a first division club in Italy after Ports Authority's defender Alagie Bun Gaye tried without success in 2009.
Sowe caught eyes of scouts during Gambia U-19 participation in the U-19 tournament in Italy Umbra.
Chievo is an Italian Premier League club based in Chievo, a suburb of 2,800 inhabitants in Verona, Veneto, and owned by Paluani, a cake company and shares the 38,402 seater Marc'Antonio Bentegodi stadium with its cross-town rivals Hellas Verona.
