West Ham United can allegedly sign Juventus left-back Luca Pellegrini for just £10.3 million in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Tuttomercatoweb who claim that Pellegrini could ‘wave goodbye’ to Juventus if the Hammers make a £10.3 million offer for his services ices this summer.
Aaron Cresswell has been a fine servant for the Hammers since moving to East London from Ipswich Town for around £4 million in the summer of 2014 (The Mirror).
It’s time for Moyes to make a big upgrade at left-back though and it seems as though his has one man in particular in mind for the job…
West Ham can sign Luca Pellegrini for bargain fee
According to a report from Tuttomercatoweb, the Hammers are in a very strong position to bring the Italian to the London Stadium this summer.
West Ham allegedly have to pay just £10.3 million to sign the 23-year-old left-back. That’s extremely good value in my book.
And he would be a huge upgrade on Cresswell in my view.
We think that Pellegrini would be a very strong signing indeed for the Hammers.
Pellegrini has bags of pace, is an able defender and offers a lot going forward as well. He is at an age where he will undoubtedly continue to improve at a fairly fast rate as well.
Pellegrini joined Juventus from Roma in 2019 for around £19 million (SI Soccer). He made an immediate impression in Turin but hasn’t been a regular starter over the past 18 months.
The 23-year-old is an attacking full-back by nature and can also operate further up the pitch if need be.
He actually rejected a move to West Ham in the summer of 2021 because he wanted to stay and fight for his place at Juve (Bianconero).
That obviously hasn’t worked out for him though. A move to the London Stadium would be a smart step for his career.
And if West Ham sign Luca Pellegrini for just £10.3 million, it will be a great bit of business from the East London outfit.
