Perth Glory midfielder Adriano Pellegrino has emerged as target for Central Coast Mariners according to reports.

The 26-year old comes out of contract soon and the Mariners are looking to bring him to Gosford as early as January, hoping that the chance to play finals will lure him away from Western Australia.

Pellegrino has been one of the Glory's more consistent performers in a tough season and he would certainly add a bit of extra grunt and force to the Mariners midfield.
