Juventus to meet Genoa for Laxalt and Pellegri

August 22, 2017

Juventus will meet with Genoa today in an effort to secure Pietro Pellegri and Diego Laxalt who could go on loan to Atalanta.

The Bianconeri are winding up their transfer dealings for the summer but are still at loggerheads with Atalanta for Leonardo Spinazzola, despite the player wanting to return to Turin.

Spinazzola missed Atalanta’s 1-0 loss to Roma, watching the game at home instead of at the stadium with Sky Sport Italia reporting that the player is still adamant that he wants to play for Juventus this season.

Atalanta refuse to budge, having agreed to loan the player for two seasons from the Bianconeri and are reluctant to allow him to return a season early.

Gazzetta dello Sport report that in effort to remedy the situation, Juventus could sign Genoa’s Diego Laxalt and loan him straight out to La Dea in exchange for them agreeing to Spinazzola’s return.

Goal Italia’s reliable Romeo Agresti and Sky Sport Italia report that Juve are also expected to discuss young midfielder Genoa striker Pieto Pellegri who the Bianconeri are very keen on.

Should Juve and Atalanta agree to Spinazzola’s return, it’s reported that Kwadwo Asamoah could be allowed to leave the club with the Ghanaian having already agreed personal terms with Galatasaray over a summer move.

    I’ve seen Laxalt in action and to my surprise he’s actually pretty good. Sort of a hidden gem in all honesty. The kid covers a ton of ground and is very strong on the defensive end. But the player with even more potential is Pellegri, if we can pull this off I’d be over the moon. Buy them and loan out to Atalanta for Spinazzola and let them develop there.
