Manchester City fans react as club reportedly eye Manuel Locatelli

Manchester City reportedly want to raid Italian side Sassuolo for impressive midfielder Manuel Locatelli according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano – and City supporters have responded on Twitter to the news, urging their club to sign the midfielder.

City are preparing for life without 35-year-old Fernandinho, with the 53-time Brazil international out of contract at the end of the season. The Premier League leaders need a new holding midfielder, and Italy international Locatelli is being eyed.

The Sassuolo ace joined the Serie A side from AC Milan in the summer of 2018, initially on loan – before being signed permanently for £12million (Sempre Inter) in 2019. He has since clocked up 87 appearances for Sassuolo in all competitions.

Fabrizio Romano has told his Here We Go podcast that City are both ‘looking’ and ‘scouting’ Locatelli, who has been called up by ex-Man City boss Roberto Mancini into the Italy side of late – with the midfielder a solid shout to make the Euro 2021 squad.

City fans have reacted on Twitter to the reports that Guardiola’s side want to bring Locatelli to The Etihad as a possible replacement for Fernandinho – and many believe he would be a stunning addition for the club, even if he is not the hugest name.
