Italian forward Pietro Pellegri (21) has completed a permanent move from AS Monaco to Serie A side Torino after joining the Italians on loan in January.
During that time he scored 9 goals and has scored once as Torino went on to finish 10th in their domestic division. In the first half of the season, he was loaned to AC Milan where he made six appearances but failed to score.
His loan to Torino did include a €7m buy option, although it is unclear as to whether that is the final fee. Sporting director Paul Mitchell last week said, “Pietro was at Torino and they want to try and find an agreement to obtain his services. We’re in positive discussions, but nothing is concluded.” It therefore seems likely that the fee is lower than the aforementioned €7m buy option.
Pellegri has struggled at Monaco since arriving for a reported €25m from Genoa back in 2018. Injuries have restricted him to just 23 appearances and he has scored just twice in that period.
