Fulham lead the race to sign Juventus defender Pellegrini

Word stemming from the media on Sunday points towards Premier League outfit Fulham as leading the race for a member of the backline of Serie A heavyweights Juventus.

The player in question? Luca Pellegrini.

For those not aware, Pellegrini, a 23-year-old left-back, spent this past season plying his trade back in Turin, on the back of a series of loan spells away from parent club Juve.

And, all told, the once-capped Italian international went on to enjoy a solid campaign, racking up 21 appearances across all competitions whilst acting as a capable rotation option with the vastly more experienced Alex Sandro.

Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri, though, has evidently been left unconvinced of Pellegrini’s credentials as a long-term option at the Allianz Stadium.

In turn, reports in the Italian media this summer have long pointed towards the defender being made available for transfer in the case of a sufficient offer arriving on Juventus’ table.

And, as alluded to above, on Sunday such a proposal could yet be forthcoming by way of the Premier League.

This comes amid suggestions that a frontrunner have emerged in the Pellegrini sweepstakes, in the form of top-flight returnees Fulham.

The info comes courtesy of the Gazzetta dello Sport, who name the Cottagers as leading a number of English clubs in the race for the talented defender.

London rivals West Ham United are also understood to be keeping a close eye on the situation, but it is Fulham who appear closest to meeting Juve’s demands of somewhere in the region of €10 to 15 million.

Pellegrini, for his part, meanwhile, is said to have green lighted a Premier League switch, excited by the prospect of playing abroad.
