Official: Genoa loan Pellegrini

Juventus left-back Luca Pellegrini has officially joined Genoa on loan for the rest of the season.

The deal was confirmed in a statement on Juve’s website this morning, which did not mention any option to buy for Genoa.

The 21-year-old was expected to kick on under Andrea Pirlo this season, having spent last season on loan at Cagliari.

However, Under-23 prospect Gianluca Frabotta started ahead of him during the Bianconeri’s 3-0 win against Sampdoria in their Serie A opener.

Instead, the left-sider will complete Rolando Maran’s 3-5-2 formation at Genoa, with Davide Zappacosta on the opposing flank.
