Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Italy and Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Locatelli shines at the Euros
Italy deservedly won Euro 2020 earlier this month, following a final victory over England and dominant performances throughout the tournament.
Locatelli played his part in the Azzurri‘s success, scoring twice in his country’s 3-0 win over Switzerland in the group stages.
The 23-year-old looked a class act in the middle of the park whenever he did play and a summer exit from Sassuolo looks on the cards, with Juventus strongly linked with a move for him.
The Latest: Liverpool linked with move
The Reds are watching the Juventus situation closely, with Arsenal also linked with a move for the midfielder.
The Verdict: Could be a great signing
Locatelli looked an excellent prospect at the Euros and he could be an ideal player to come in and fill the Gini Wijnaldum-shaped void in the middle of the park.
At 23, he would represent a long-term signing, but he is also experienced enough to be a key man from the off, already winning 15 caps for Italy.
