Spanish side Valencia’s hunt for a right-back has brought them to Italy, with Los Che eyeing a particular talent from Atalanta’s youth ranks in Marco Pelestra.

As per Il Giorno, Atalanta have been alerted of Valencia’s interest in signing Palestra, who joined Atalanta as a youngster aged just 10 back in 2015. However, La Dea seem disinterested in hearing any proposals for the teenage prodigy, although the right offer may just change their opinion.

Pelestra, well-touted for his ability to advance down the right flank, is highly-regarded amongst the Nerazzurri ranks, with Gian Piero Gasperini inviting the 19-year-old to the first team bench on several occasions the past Serie A season.

As part of the UEFA Europa League winning squad, Pelestra made his debut for the club in December 2023 against Rakow Czestochowa in the group stages. He also has 1 goal and 2 assists in 9 appearances for Italy U19.
