Inter-linked Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi is a target for a number of clubs in Italy according to Neroverdi CEO Giovanni Carnevali.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN ahead of his side’s win over AC Milan earlier today, the executive clarified that a number of clubs have already asked about the availability of the young Italian midfielder.
Frattesi has enjoyed a breakout season for the Neroverdi, scoring three times to put the exclamation point on polished overall displays.
The 22-year-old has shown that he is able to make up the step up to top flight football after impressing last season in Serie B on loan with Monza.
Frattesi’s performances have earned him the attention of a number of top clubs, and the Nerazzurri are one of the teams most widely reported to have a serious interest in signing him at some point during the upcoming transfer windows.
Carnevali acknowledged this, stating that “We bought Frattesi several years ago from the Roma academy and we gave him room to grow, so we’re not surprised by his form now.”
“We knew he was ready for our first team,” he went on. “This is how we work, we focus on younger guys and allow them to grow and then end up at a top club.”
Asked whether any big clubs had inquired about the midfielder, he responded “More than one!”
