Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Italian international Manuel Locatelli, informs the Sportslense.
The 23-year-old has been one of the breakout stars in Serie this past season, sparking interest from across Europe.
Manchester City, Chelsea, Juventus, Real Madrid and Arsenal are amongst the other clubs keeping tabs on the midfielder.
According to Gazzetta, newly appointed spurs director Fabio Paratici could make a move for Locatelli this summer.
The report adds that Juventus is the preferred destination for the midfielder but he would not deny himself the opportunity to play abroad.
He has a contract with Sassuolo until the summer of 2023, and they will only consider selling him if their asking price is met. Locatelli will cost around €40 million.

He bagged four goals and three assists last term and was impressive in Italy’s opening game of the European Championships against Turkey.
Sassuolo will be hoping for more of the same throughout the summer. Quality performances in the European Championships could drive the midfielder’s price up.
