TRANSFER NEWS THURSDAY 1 JULY: SASSUOLO PUTTING PRESSURE ON JUVENTUS

Locatelli

For Locatelli, 40mln€ may not be enough. With Juve, there are talks, like last summer. There are also foreign clubs. Locatelli has a lot of requests, but also last year. The EURO is giving him a lot of attention, especially to foreign teams. There is great competition. Then we'll make the best decision with the player. Cherubini and I haven't talked about figures or formulas. Arsenal has made an official bid for Locatelli. They’re pushing hard to sign Manuel and it’s an important bid... we will see. Also, Juventus want Locatelli and we have a special relationship with them. We have a new meeting scheduled with Juve. [Carnevali Sassuolo CEO]


Arsenal sources deny making any official bid (there's a feeling Sassuolo is using Arsenal's name to get Juve to offer more). I am told Arsenal's interest in Locatelli is genuine and there has been contact between the clubs. A move hasn't been ruled out. Juventus are clearly in the driving seat with this one. If they pay up, they will get it done. Arsenal interested and it is something that could potentially move forward if Juventus don't meet Sassuolo's demands.
