Juventus could draft Luca Pellegrini to the first-team setup

Serie A side Juventus could be looking to draft defender Luca Pellegrini into their first team setup for the 2021/22 campaign.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have talked about Juventus’ scenario at left-back, saying that Alex Sandro is expected to be part of the plans under Max Allegri because the Italian was the manager who catapulted the Brazilian into becoming one of the best left-backs in Europe at one point and they share a mutual trust.

With Gianluca Frabotta having departed for Verona though, there is a need for a back-up left-back and that could well be Pellegrini next season.

It has been suggested that Juve trust in the ex-Roma man, even though his loan spell at Cagliari was wrecked by injuries recently. They want to give him a chance in the first-team next season.
