Pippo Inzaghi has emerged as a candidate to replace Eusebio Di Francesco on the Sassuolo bench.
Di Francesco is seen as on his way out of the Neroverdi, after a disappointing defeat at the weekend to Livorno saw the side slip back into the relegation zone.
Whilst Alberto Malesani was linked with the position yesterday, reports today indicate that Milan youth team boss Inzaghi has been approached.
It is understood that the retired striker, who was linked recently with temporarily replacing Max Allegri on the San Siro bench before Clarence Seedorf’s accelerated arrival, has made Milan aware of the interest too.
However, Adriano Galliani is believed by Sky Sport Italia as having considered the proposal and indicated to Inzaghi his desire for him to honour his contract with the Primavera, which runs through to June 2016.
Another meeting between Inzaghi and Galliani on the situation is expected during the course of Tuesday.
Sassuolo are believed reluctant to confirm Di Francesco’s removal from the bench before they have his replacement lined up.
