Arsenal receive transfer boost as Italy Euro 2020 star’s Serie A club identify replacement for Gunners target

Sassuolo have reportedly already identified their replacement for Arsenal target Manuel Locatelli.

The Italian midfielder will depart the Serie A side this summer, with the Gunners and Juventus keen to sign him.

Arsenal have already tabled a £34million bid, but Locatelli is waiting for Juventus to make an offer as he looks to link up with the Old Lady.

The Premier League club’s official bid to Sassuolo for the midfielder, is said to be the best financial package received for the star so far.

And according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Sassuolo are determined to bring in Liverpool outcast Marko Grujic as his replacement.

He tweeted: “Sassuolo have asked Liverpool for Marko Grujic as potential new signing to replace Locatelli who’s leaving the club this summer.”
