Eintracht Frankfurt loan Luca Pellegrini from Juventus FC!

Eintracht Frankfurt and Juventus FC have reached an agreement for the loan of Luca Pellegrini. The Italian will join Eintracht for the 2022/23 season.

The Rome native rose through the youth ranks at AS Roma between 2011 and 2018 before making the step up to the first-team squad. Following a six-month loan at Cagliari Calcio, he moved to Juventus in summer 2019.

Further loans ensued, at Cagliari and CFC Genoa, before the 23-year-old made 21 competitive outings for Juventus last season, helping them win the Italian Coppa Italia.

All told, Pellegrini has made 69 Serie A appearances to date. The 1.78-metre defender counts his strength in the tackle, crossing, set-piece deliveries and pace among his chief attributes.

“Lucas Pellegrini can operate in both defensive positions on the left flank, be it in front of a three-man backline or a little deeper in a back four,” said Eintracht board member for sport Markus Krösche. “He will give us more variety in our build-up play and increase our flexibility overall.”
