The Italian Football Federation is not allowing clubs to share the ownership of players once this season comes to an end, meaning that the player who is half owned by Juventus is unlikely to stay with Sassuolo according to the Daily Express. The Old Lady have the option of signing the whole of the player for €13 million says the original report, but it is unknown whether they will take this up.

Calciomercato also believes Wolfsburg and Schalke 04 are involved in the chase for the 20-year-old, who has eight goals and nine assists in Serie A action so far. The North London club would presumably be signing the Italy Under 21’s international to back up current first choice striker Olivier Giroud, who has netted 17 times in 27 appearances this season.
