Pietro Pellegri remains subject to a wealth of interest following his explosion on to the Serie A scence with Genoa last year when he was just 16.

The Italian youth international is very highly valued by the Genoa management and report that they want €30 million for the striker.

The fee is thought to have ruled out all of the teams in Italy who are unwilling to take the risk in making such a big investment in such a young player.

Premier League side Manchester United are very keen on signing Pellegri as are city rivals Manchester City as well as Arsenal.

Inter were close to striking a deal with Genoa over the transfer of Pellegri and fellow Genoa youngster Eddy Salcedo but they have now been overtaken in the race to sign him. Pellegri is under contract at the Marassi through to 2019 having signed a contract extension back in March of this year.
