Arsenal news: Could Gunners land Euro 2020 ace?
Locatelli came through the ranks at AC Milan and joined Sassuolo on loan in 2018.
A year later, the Neroverdi paid a reported £12.6m to sign the 23-year-old permanently.
Locatelli has made 99 appearances for Sassuolo, including 34 last season.
However, the rising star is now truly making a name for himself at Euro 2020.
He has registered two goals and one assist from Italy’s three group games.
