Luca Pellegrini is bound to leave Juventus, although his next destination is uncertain, as Nice, Milan, and Lazio are all interested. He spent the last six months with the Biancocelesti, which didn’t pick up their €15M option to buy. They are trying to bring him back with another loan. The Old Lady signaled to be open to the formula, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.
The Rossoneri are also looking for a left-back, and he’s on their wish list. They had a long conversation about him with his current club, Sportitalia informs. They’d like to sign an Italian player, but his robust wages are an obstacle. Riccardo Calafiori is the top option since he’s cheaper.
Nice emerged as credible suitors for Pellegrini in the last few days, threatening Milan and Lazio. The Bianconeri have set a €8M price tag. The Ligue 1 side is the most determined bidder at this stage, Tuttomercatoweb reports.
The defender began last season at Eintracht Frankfurt before returning to the Peninsula. He notched 20 total appearances in the two separate stints. He previously starred for Genoa and Cagliari.
Our Take on Pellegrini, Lazio, Milan, and Nice
He’ll end up in France if they lodge a substantial bid, while the two Italian outfits will most likely try to add him on loan. Whether or not he takes a clear stance in favor of one particular side could make the difference.
