Pellegrini undergoes medical ahead of Juventus move

Luca Pellegrini is on the cusp of completing a move to Juventus after arriving at the club's health centre for a medical on Sunday.

The 20-year-old Roma left-back is expected to sign a five-year deal in a reported €10million switch that will send Leonardo Spinazzola in the opposite direction.

Pellegrini, an Italy Under-21 international, spent the second half of last season on loan at Cagliari, where he made 12 appearances in Serie A.

His transfer to Turin will boost Maurizio Sarri's full-back stocks after the new Bianconeri boss opted not to retain Spinazzola, who struggled for first-team opportunities under Massimiliano Allegri last term.
