Serie A giants Juventus would have to pay a fee totaling up to €45 million to sign Sassuolo star Manuel Locatelli, with Arsenal willing to pay that amount to the Neroverdi.
Sportmediaset have provided some details about the Locatelli transfer saga, claiming that the ex-Milan man only wants to sign for Juve and this has forced Sassuolo to negotiate with the Bianconeri for a summer transfer. Arsenal are a result, aren’t in the equation.
Locatelli want a fee of €8-€10 million for a one-year loan deal but want an obligation to buy agreement in the deal for a fee of €35 million. Juve’s first bid had them offer €5 million for a two-year loan deal with the obligation to buy for €25 million.
Massimiliano Allegri considers the midfielder to be a priority this summer and Sassuolo are happy to discuss whether they’d let him go on a one-year loan deal or a two-year deal.
