Juventus and Sassuolo will reportedly meet tomorrow to continue the negotiations over a move for Italy international Manuel Locatelli.

The former Milan youth wants a move to the Bianconeri but the two clubs are not agreeing on the transfer fee for the midfielder.

Tuttosport reports the Bianconeri are asking for a two-year loan deal with an option to buy Locatelli, but Sassuolo insist on a one-year loan with an unconditional obligation to buy the player for at least €35m.

Nedved: ‘Juventus made appropriate Locatelli offer’

Locatelli has returned to Italy after the extended holidays due to his international duties with Italy at the Euros this summer, and the 23-year-old has already snubbed moves to the Premier League to join Juventus.

Arsenal and Liverpool are still monitoring his situation, according to the Turin based newspaper, but Juventus and Sassuolo meet again tomorrow to continue the discussions.

Locatelli has a deal until June 2023 with the Neroverdi, where he joined on a permanent deal in July 2019.

He spent 2018-19 on loan from Milan, where he came through the academy system after starting his career with Atalanta Youth.
