Federico Peluso (born 20 January 1984) is an Italian footballer who plays as a left back for Serie A club Sassuolo and the Italian national team.

Career[edit]

Peluso began his career on ASD Petriana, in Rome. He later moved to Lazio, but was subsequently released.

In 2001 he joined Pro Vercelli, where he played three full seasons. In 2004 summer he joined Ternana, and after two years in the club, he was bought from AlbinoLeffe, being promoted with the Bergamo club.

However, in his second season, he had a fallout with the club's ownership, and was removed from squad. In January 2009, Peluso joined Atalanta, as an exchange for Karamoko Cissé.[2]

On 8 March 2009, Peluso made his Serie A debut, playing against A.C. Milan.[3] On 25 October, he made his first top flight goal, against Parma.[4]

On 3 January 2013, Peluso joined Juventus on a 6 month loan, with a view to a permanent transfer after the period. On June 2013, Juventus have announced they have completed the signing of Federico Peluso from Atalanta for a transfer fee of €4.8 million. He spent the second half of the 2012-13 campaign on loan at the Bianconeri and has done enough to earn himself a permanent transfer and a contract until June 2017. After the end of the 2013-14 season, Serie A side Sassuolo announced that they have acquired him outright.[5]

International career[edit]

On 10 August 2012, after his impressive performances on Atalanta, Peluso (alongside teammates Andrea Consigli, Manolo Gabbiadini and Ezequiel Schelotto) was called from manager Cesare Prandelli to the Italian national squad.[6] Five days later, he made his debut, in a friendly loss against England.[7] On 11 September, he made his first national goal, against Malta.[8]
