Sassuolo’s CEO, Giovanni Carnevali, says Arsenal have submitted a bid for Manuel Locatelli following his impressive form in the Euro 2020, as he helped Italy win the trophy.
Arsenal, alongside Serie A giants Juventus, are one of the clubs keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old.
Locatelli’s agent recently revealed that the Gunners had made a £34million bid and now Carnevali has backed this up, while also revealing interest from another Premier League side.
He told Sky Sport Italia: “Tomorrow we’ll have a direct contact with Juventus for Locatelli. He wants to join Juve.
“We’d be happy to sell Manuel (Locatelli) to Juve… but they need to pay the right fee.
“Arsenal made a bid to sign him and also a new English club is now in the race.”
