Federico Peluso: Atalanta full-back has been linked with a move to the Premier League
Atalanta's general director Pierpaolo Marino claims a leading Premier League club are on the trail of defender Federico Peluso.
Serie A champions Juventus reportedly had a recent offer of €4.5million (£3.6m) rejected, with Atalanta rumoured to value the 28-year-old at €7m (£5.6m).
Napoli have also been linked with a bid for the left-back, but Marino believes there is a danger that Peluso could be leaving Italian football.
"Peluso has so many requests. One of the top clubs in the Premier League is monitoring Peluso and I think that our league (Serie A) may lose him," Marino said to Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Is the English team from London? No, not London. Are they Roberto Mancini's City? You are quick to make conclusions."
Peluso, who has two years left on his contract, joined Atalanta in January 2009 and made 33 league appearances to help the Bergamaschi finish 12th in Serie A last season.
