After top performer Filip Kostic switched to Italian record champions Juventus Turin, left-back Luca Pellegrini switched to Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 23-year-old comes to Hessen on loan from Juventus, as the Bundesliga club announced on Friday. Pellegrini played a total of 69 Serie A games.
“Luca Pellegrini can fill both defensive positions on the left flank – both in front of a three-man defense and one position lower in a four-man defense. He makes us even more variable in the game structure and in the defensive network and generally increases our flexibility,” said sporting director Markus Krösche. According to Juve, Kostic had previously changed for twelve million euros plus additional costs, plus possible success bonuses of three million euros.
