Juventus have entered the battle to sign Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini, according to the Corriere Dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com).

The Mirror reports that the Italian international is a target for Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, but Juve could also get involved due to the player’s relatively low release clause.

Pellegrini joined Roma for £9m from Sassuolo in the summer, but a buyout clause was included as part of his contract, which means he could leave for just €25m (£22m).

The playmaker is only 21 years of age, and is believed to have a bright future in the game. So far this season, he has made 21 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals and providing three assists.

The Blues were linked with Pellegrini before he made the switch to Roma in the summer, but the Italian decided to return to Rome after making his way through the youth system at the Giallorossi.
