Lille to sign 18-year-old midfielder Eugenio Pizzuto from Pachuca

Gianluca di Marzio reports that Ligue 1 side Lille are in advanced negotiations to sign 18-year-old Italian-Mexican midfield talent Eugenio Pizzuto from Liga MX outfit Pachuca.

The former captain of the U17s Mexican national team has an Italian passport and would not have to go down as a non-EU signing for Les Dogues.

Pizzuto made his first team debut with Pachuca in January, but it was a debut to forget after suffering a fracture in his leg. Regardless, Luis Campos has decided to take the plunge on him and is expected to undergo a medical later this week with the Ligue 1 club.
