Luca Pellegrini will spend this season on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt after Juventus agreed to allow him to join the Germans.
The Azzurri star has been working hard to become Juve’s first choice ever since he broke into his first team. However, that has not happened.
The loan spell in the Bundesliga is expected to develop him further by exposing him to a new league and Champions League football.
But the Germans have not been overly impressed with Pellegrini’s performance this term and some reports even claim he will end the loan six months early.
Lazio want the 23-year-old to join them, and Maurizio Sarri is keen to work with the defender again after their time together at Juve.
A Football Italia report reveals that Pellegrini also wants the move and seems tired of playing in the German top flight. However, bringing it back in January will require work.
Juve FC says
Pellegrini is a talented player and unfortunately playing in Germany has not helped the left-back.
But a return to Serie A with Lazio might be more suitable for him, considering the former Roma trainee will face familiar opponents in the competition.
