CM: Unhappy Pellegri asks about potential January exit – Milan eye Penarol star as replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could bring in a new centre-forward during the January transfer window as Pietro Pellegri is unhappy with his current situation, it is claimed.

Speaking in a video on his Instagram, Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com reports that Pellegri is unhappy with the amount of playing time that he has received so far at Milan and has asked for the possibility of leaving in January.

His time with the Rossoneri has been heavily affected by injuries so far plus the fact that he is behind Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the pecking order. Torino are pushing hard to sign Pellegri to flesh out their attacking department and it could free up some interesting possibilities for Milan.

Milan would replace him if he left and they have sent Geoffrey Moncada’s right-hand man to South America. One of the names mentioned as a potential replacement is Augustin Alvarez of Penarol – who has 23 goals in 38 games this season – but other South American talents are being monitored too.

    Krunic and Pellegri for Bellotti?

    1. Nelli says:

      Not a bad exchange, I actually think Krunic would fit well in a team like Torino and I believe they want him. Sounds like a win win.

      Why when Belotti is free in June and now he’s hurt – hence Torino’s interest in Pellegri…No way Maldini does that IMO…

    another Hauge fail by Pioli… this is all his fault.. just like the previous season, the team played well up until the old guys got tired. And because Pioli does’t trust youngsters we lose important tempo in the championship.

      Same thinking bro… Maybe Pellegri is not a “Gold”, but he deserve more playing time..
      Given that we have 2 old striker too…
