Lazio Newcomer Elated for Awaited Deadline Day Transfer

Lazio signed Luca Pellegrini after all, despite being unable to offload some misfits to open up room in their wage bill. They completed the deal and hope to offload excess players in countries where the transfer market is still open.

The fullback terminated his loan spell at Eintracht Frankfurt early and transferred the Biancocelesti with the same formula, with a €15M option to buy from Juventus. He had moved to Die Adler shortly after the Old Lady signed Filip Kostic. He notched 14 appearances during his time in Germany.

Pellegrini commented on his Lazio switch to the club’s Tik Tok (via Corriere dello Sport).

“I’m very happy to have joined my boyhood club. I look forward to hug you all.”

A product of the Roma youth academy, he played for Cagliari, Juventus, and Genoa during the course of his career. The Bianconeri acquired him in 2019 in a partial swap with Leonardo Spinazzola. He and Maurizio Sarri briefly crossed paths in Turin. He gave up part of his wages to facilitate the move, and Eintracht granted him a severance package, Tuttomercatoweb relays. According to Alfredo Pedullà, the capital side is in talks with Alanyaspor concerning Mohamed Fares.

Our Take on Lazio Signing Pellegrini

The Biancocelesti love to sign players that support them, and it worked out well with Alessio Romagnoli. The future clause is reasonable, and they’ll find a way for him to stay put if he avoids injuries, which is a question mark, and shows well. They needed a lefty to round out their corps at the position.
