Matri nears Sassuolo switch

Multiple reports suggest Milan striker Alessandro Matri is close to agreeing a move to Sassuolo.

The forward joined the Rossoneri from Juventus for a fee of €11m in 2013, but failed to force his way into the side.

Having been sent on loan to Fiorentina, Juventus, Genoa and Lazio, it now appears Matri is close to a permanent switch to the Neroverdi.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Emilian side are offering a three-year contract worth €1.2m per season to tempt the 31-year-old.

In addition, Sky is reporting that Sassuolo are ahead of Bologna and MLS side Montreal Impact in the race for Matri’s signature.

Matri won three Scudetti and the Coppa Italia in two spells with Juventus, but managed just one goal in 15 Serie A games for Milan.
