Stephan Kareem el-Shaarawy (Arabic: ستيفان کریم الشعراوي‎, translit. Stīfān Karīm ash-Shaʿrāwī‎; born 27 October 1992) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Roma and the Italy national team. He is nicknamed Il Faraone (The Pharaoh), as his father is Egyptian.

He began his career at Genoa, and was signed by Milan in 2011 after a successful loan at Padova. Frequently regarded as one of the most promising youngsters of his generation, in 2012 El Shaarawy was named one of the top players born after 1991 by Don Balón, and he was listed 52nd in The Guardian' s list of the best footballers in the world. He spent the 2015–16 season on loan with Monaco and subsequently Roma.

Internationally, he represented Italy from under-16 to under-19 youth levels, before he made his debut with the Italy under-21 side on 15 November 2011. In August 2012, he made his senior international debut for Italy during a friendly match against England, and in November 2012 scored his first international goal against France. He represented Italy at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, where they finished in third place, and at UEFA Euro 2016.
