Alberto Malesani is likely to be named as the new Sassuolo Coach, according to reports in the Italian Press.
Sky Sport Italia have revealed this afternoon that the Neroverdi will try and tempt the 59-year-old to the club after being turned down in their approach for Pippo Inzaghi.
It has been claimed that the Rossoneri hierarchy have blocked the promoted team’s bid for the Primavera Coach within the last few hours.
As such, Sassuolo will turn to Malesani, who has been out of work since last year when he briefly took charge at Palermo.
