Milan showed interest in Genoa wonderkid Pietro Pellegri on deadline day, but a deal was not struck. However, Genoa’s president, Enrico Preziosi, told MilanNews.it on Friday that Milan retain their interest, but they are not alone.
Pietro Pellegri has truly made a name of himself recently, scoring 2 goals in Genoa’s 4-3 loss against Lazio, having a record of three goals in four Serie A games as a 16 year old.
The Rossoneri showed their interest in Genoa’s top prospect on deadline day, but didn’t reach a deal over his services. However, according to Genoa’s president Enrico Preziosi, who spoke with MilanNews.it, the Rossoneri retain their interest in the young striker.
However, they are not alone, Preziosi said:
“This is what I say in relation to Pietro Pellegri situation: We will not find out anything today, that’s for sure. Milan were interested in the last day of the mercato? Yes, but I still have him.
“Milan are not the only ones interested, at least three Serie A clubs and three English clubs are interested as well.“
