Sassuolo have announced that midfielder Davide Frattesi, linked with Inter, Milan and Juventus among others, has signed a new contract to 2026.

The 22-year-old’s previous deal had been due to expire in June 2025, so this adds one year and gives him a significant pay rise.

A product of the Roma youth academy, Frattesi was sold to Sassuolo in 2017 for just €5m, but the Giallorossi are also owed 30 per cent of any future transfer fee.

It has been a breakout season for him, scoring four goals and providing two assists in 28 Serie A appearances for the Neroverdi.

Frattesi is expected to be in the senior Italy squad for the upcoming World Cup play-offs against North Macedonia and either Portugal or Turkey.

He has been heavily linked with a potential summer transfer to Inter, with Milan, Juventus and several Premier League clubs also believed to be interested.

This new contract will give Sassuolo a slightly stronger bargaining position, along with their promise of regular first-team football.
