AS Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini is reportedly close to securing his long-term future at the club.
According to a report from popular Italian news outlet Gazzette dello Sport via insidefutbol, Roma officials are convinced that the 22-year-old will put pen to paper on a new contract at the club.
The Italian Serie A giants see him as a key part of their future plans and are ready to tie him down beyond his current deal.
His present contract expires at the end of the 2021/22 season.
Since making his debut for Roma, he has scored four goals in 33 appearances.
The aforementioned report also claimed that his salary will rise to around €2.5m on a yearly basis when he signs the new contract.
Lorenzo Pellegrini was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United during the last transfer window in the summer, but he decided to pitch his tent with AS Roma.
Italian champions Juventus are also monitoring his situation with the capital club.
Pellegrini was also linked with the new Arsenal evolution under Spanish tactician Unai Emery.
He is a full Italian international and has made eight appearances for the national team since making his debut against San Marino in May 2017.
