Meanwhile, Locatelli reportedly prefers a potential switch to Juve over the other options on the table.

As well as Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund have apparently tabled a bid too.

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.

“Decisions to make”

Earlier this month, Locatelli admitted he may have a tough decision to make on his future once the Euros are over.

“It is just gossip. There is such an important competition to play and I am focused on that,’ he told reporters at Italy’s training camp, via Metro.

“It is normal to have rumours about the transfer market, but I will not let myself be influenced by them.

“It would be a waste of time to think about that, even though I know that after the Euros will have some decisions to make.”
