Liverpool ‘submit offer’ for Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini

Liverpool ‘submit offer’ for Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini

Reports stemming from Italy suggest that Liverpool have submitted an offer for AS Roma and Italy star, Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Pellegrini’s Roma stint

Lorenzo Pellegrini joined Roma in 2017, after departing fellow Italian outfit Sassuolo for a fee believed to be in the region of £9m.

This marked the second time that the midfielder signed for the Giallorossi, after spending much of his youth career with the capital outfit.

Pellegrini has, all told, gone on to feature 152 times for his boyhood club. Across these outings, the 24-year-old has managed to score 21 and assist 34.

The Italian, despite still being fairly young, also spent much of the second half of this past season as Roma’s captain.

Liverpool eyeing Lorenzo Pellegrini

In turn, now, as mentioned above, Pellegrini appears to be attracting interest from a top Premier League side.

That team comes in the form of Liverpool, who are likely in the market for a central midfielder with Georginio Wijnaldum set to depart this month when his contract expires.

Pellegrini, on paper, seems like a solid replacement for the Dutchman, as, like Wijnaldum, he can operate at both ends of the pitch.

Granted, the 17-time capped international is slightly more attack-minded than Wijnaldum, but he would still likely fit into Jurgen Klopp’s system.

As a result, as per the Evening Standard (citing Italian outlet the Corriere dello Sport), Liverpool have submitted an offer worth £25.8m for Pellegrini.
