Last summer, Juventus and Eintracht Frankfurt had finally managed to reach an agreement for the transfer of Filip Kostic after months of negotiations.
However, this did not mean the end of business between the clubs. Shortly after the Serb’s switch to Turin, Luca Pellegrini surprisingly made the move in the opposite direction.
The 23-year-old acts as a direct replacement for Kostic, operating at left back in a 3-4-2-1 formation.
According to the ilbianconero, Pellegrini has been impressing in his outings for the Bundesliga club, contributing at both ends of the pitch.
Aside from a few missed games due to minor injury problems, he quickly established himself as a regular starter and helped the Germans reach the knockout stages of the Champions League. They will face Napoli in the round of 16.
The source explains that Juventus are naturally keeping a close eye on the player’s performance, but the club are also aware that Frankfurt may try to keep him on a permanent basis, although the loan deal is not believed to include a purchase option. .
At the end of the season, the Bianconeri are expected to part ways with Alex Sandro, which could provide an opportunity for Pellegrini’s return.
However, it should be noted that the club also have another promising young left-back Andrea Cambiaso (currently on loan at Bologna) on the books, while we are also linked with more established names such as Benfica’s Alex Grimaldo.
