The 22-year-old is in the process of a high-profile transfer back to his former club Roma, at a cost of over €20m.
He also had three senior caps for Italy, all of them earned this month in the Nations League.
However, Frattesi hit the headlines for unfortunate reasons today when fans spotted a completely naked picture in his Instagram Stories feed.
It was quickly deleted and Frattesi published a message that did little to fully explain the situation.
“Sorry guys, but someone has somehow hacked my phone and this photograph was published… I’m sorry!”
That message too was then taken down very quickly, presumably because it did not explain why he was taking naked selfies in the first place.
People were quick to take screencaps of the moment and it went viral in Italy, albeit in a censored form.
