Juventus agree to sign Manuel Locatelli in £30m transfer after beating Arsenal to Sassuolo's Euro 2020 star

JUVENTUS have finally reached an agreement for Manuel Locatelli after beating Arsenal in the chase for the Sassuolo star.

The Premier League side have been linked with the Italian international throughout the summer window.


However, we reported that the Gunners had given up on signing the 23-year-old midfielder.

Locatelli’s preferred destination has always been the Bianconeri instead of Arsenal’s more lucrative offer and now his dream switch is set to be completed.

Several reports in Europe have confirmed that Juventus have agreed to pay Sassuolo £30m for the star.

Juve have also agreed to initially make it a two-year loan with the obligation to buy for £30m including other potential bonuses.

That obligation will be activated as soon as Juventus get their first Serie A point of the 2022-23 season.

Locatelli is now heading to Turin to undergo his medical and finalise the transfer.

The move will cap an epic summer for the ace after he helped his country beat England at Wembley to win Euro 2020.

Last term he made 34 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo – his third season with the Italian side.

Locatelli started his career at AC Milan, featuring 63 times in all competitions before joining Sassuolo in the summer of 2018.
