TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS:Reports
academy prospect Gabriel Pellegrino has signed with SC Freiburg of the 2. Bundesliga, the 16-year old shared on an Instagram post.
Steven Goff of
The Washington Post
was the first to report this on Friday.
Pellegrino isn't the only TFC youngster generating overseas interest.
According to another Friday report, this time from ESPN's Tom Hamilton, forward Jordan Perruzza is attracting European suitors, including Portsmouth, Brentford, Watford, QPR and Middlesbrough, in addition to clubs in Germany and Italy. Several English Premier League sides are also reportedly interested in the 19-year-old, but a move to the EPL would be complicated by quarantine rules requiring the player to spend multiple weeks in the country before he would be able to go on trial.
Perruzza, who holds an EU passport, has been productive with Toronto FC II in the USL Championship, with 17 goals in 28 games.
