Several of the Premier League’s elite clubs are in the hunt for Lorenzo Pellegrini, as per reports.
The Roma midfielder has attracted a lot of attention from a number of clubs around Europe this season, with his consistent performances for the Italian side catching the eye of several powerhouses.
The youngster’s stats are not too shabby either, with an impressive 21 appearances under his belt so far, scoring two goals along the way.
The most attractive part of Lorenzo to most clubs though, is his price. The 21-year-old is only worth a paltry £21 million at the moment – a figure Roma are desperately attempting to change.
Pellegrini graduated from Roma’s academy, and had been on loan at fellow Serie A side Sassuolo for two seasons.
His sudden burst onto the scene at his parent club this campaign has left the Giallorossi scrambling for their cheque book in a bid to give him a new and improved contract.
This would naturally see a rise in his price, but Roma fear that a big club may come in with an irresistible offer before they get the chance to do so.
Manchester duo and Chelsea are all keeping tabs on the young midfielder, and are eager to swoop in before each other to avoid missing out on a bargain.
