Juventus and Napoli have now joined Roma and Milan in the race for Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi, claim reports this evening.

The player turns 23 next month and has three senior caps for Italy, only recently signing a new contract with the Neroverdi until June 2026.

Roma had been in advanced talks for several weeks, but baulked at the €30m asking price, even if they would get a discount because as one of their youth players they are owed 30 per cent of the sell-on fee.

Milan were also mentioned, while today La Repubblica suggested Frattesi could be a replacement if Fabian Ruiz was sold to PSG.

Now Sky Sport Italia insist that Juventus have begun active negotiations with Sassuolo to purchase the midfielder after news Paul Pogba will not undergo knee surgery, making his recovery time unpredictable.

Because Frattesi has such a long contract, Sassuolo would be prepared to make it a loan with obligation to buy, therefore stretching the cost of the operation out over two or more financial years.

They did a similar deal with Juventus for Manuel Locatelli, who Frattesi would reunite with in Turin.
