Chelsea and Manchester United are two of the clubs circling around Genoa youngster Pietro Pellegri, according to reports.
The 17 year old midfielder broke into Genoa’s first team last season and has continued his fine form this season, netting a brace against Lazio on Sunday afternoon.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport via the Metro, a host of clubs have been impressed with Pellegri’s performance since he came onto the scene.
And AC Milan, Juventus as well as Arsenal are some of the clubs also keen on the teenager.
Chelsea are believed to be watching the midfielder with keen interest and could rival Man Utd and others for his signature.
Pellegri’s agent is believed to be in England, sparking speculations that a move to the Premier League is underway.
Chelsea have more than three dozens of players on loan. The club signs players in their teens and then send them out on loan to continue their development, making it unsurprising if we are truly interested in Pellegri.
Recently, the Blues have been facing criticism for their youth policy and are now under investigation from FIFA. Although the club has already denied any wrong doing, it may have to calm down on youth player recruitment for the time being.
These latest development could cause Chelsea to match the brakes on Pellegri’s pursuit.
