Sassuolo are seen as still holding hope to take Juventus full-back Paolo De Ceglie on loan this transfer window.
Even so, the Gazzetta dello Sport say that Sassuolo have not given up hope of trying to pick up the left-sided player this month either.
The Neroverdi have a good relationship with Juve and currently have Luca Marrone, Domenico Berardi, Simone Zaza and Reto Ziegler on their books as a result.
