The January transfer window continues to offer significant twists and turns in the Empoli ranks.
According to reports from Italian football news site Pianeta Empoli, the Tuscan side have taken a keen interest in Torino’s young striker, Pietro Pellegri. The development is intriguing as it appears that the current negotiations for Cerri have hit a stumbling block and the club is pivoting to identify a new attacking option.
Pellegri, born in 2001, has found limited opportunity in Turin due to the impressive performance of strike duo Zapata-Sanabria. This has opened up a potential move to Empoli as they look to boost their attacking ranks.
The sources indicate the groundwork has been laid for what could be a formidable deal, although specifics surrounding fees and contract details remain under wraps at this stage. With the transfer window still open, only time will tell if Empoli can secure the services of the young attacker.
