While he has yet to lock himself a regular starting berth, Frattesi has been an important option off the bench.
He often comes in during the second half to replace Nicolo Barella or Henrikh Mkhitaryan, thus adding a burst of energy to the middle of the park.
The former Sassuolo man has thus far contributed with four goals and as many assists across all competitions this season.
His tally includes a goal in the Derby della Madonnina demolition of AC Milan and a dramatic late winner against Hellas Verona.
