Alfredo Pedulla spoke to Sportitalia regarding “Ranocchia? Sassuolo were interested but they have not formalized their interest, there was talk of Acerbi as a possible bargaining chip but the Neroverdi player resisted.

Bologna was also interested in the player but they never made a formal offer to the Nerazzurri. There is talk of offers from the Premier League, and the most reliable track is the one that leads to Swansea.”

With Assane Gnoukouri looking set for Udinese, Ibrahim Cissé of Standard Liege is the player touted in Crotone’s search for a new midfielder.
