Euro 2020: Locatelli’s chance to shine in front of Arsenal

According to Sky Sport Italia, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and PSG are keeping a close eye on Sassuolo and Italy midfielder Manuel Locatelli, who will start against Turkey tonight.

The product of Milan academy could be on his way out of the Mapei Stadium in the summer, but the Neroverdi want at least €40m to sell him.

However, his price tag could further increase in the near future, if the 23-year-old impresses at the Euros.

Locatelli is expected to start with Nicolò Barella and Jorginho in Italy’s midfield against Turkey this evening.

The Azzurri are without the injured Marco Verratti, who is expected to recover for the second game of the group stage, while Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini was ruled out of the competition due to a muscle injury and replaced by Fiorentina’s Gaetano Castrovilli.

Juventus are also interested in Locatelli, but can’t match Sassuolo’s asking price.

The Serie A giants will reportedly try to include Nicolò Rovella in a swap deal to lower Locatelli’s price tag, but the Bianconeri will face competition to secure the services of the former Milan man.
