Premier League Sides Eye Pellegrini, Roma Want Loanee Back

Lorenzo Pellegrini has landed on the radar of a few English clubs, but it appears there won’t be surprises concerning his Roma future. The midfielder had a challenging first half of the season, where he wasn’t a regular starter under José Mourinho. However, he quickly bonded with Daniele De Rossi and returned to form in the final few months.

According to Il Tempo (via OneFootball), the Giallorossi have plenty of transfer market matters to tend to, but finding a replacement for their captain shouldn’t be one of them. They aren’t facing much pressure either, as he’s under contract until 2026. The coach would veto such an exit, and the linchpin is in no rush to depart.

Pellegrini has been a staple at Roma since 2017 and has racked up 282 appearances, scoring 52 goals. He’s poised for a significant role for the Azzurri in Euro 2024 as well, where he might wear the coveted no.10.

New director Florent Ghisolfi has landed in Italy to get to work. One of his first moves will be to try having Diego Llorente back, Gianluca Di Marzio informs. The defender has spent the last 18 months on loan from Leeds United. He has featured in 54 matches with them. The Giallorossi don’t have a pre-determined option to buy.

Our Take on Roma, Pellegrini, and Llorente

They already have several holes, so it’d be great for them if they could keep all the centerpieces. The Spanish center-back has been dependable, but it’ll come down to the fee and other potential options for the role.
