Sassuolo are considering Croatian tactician Zoran Zekic, currently at Osijek, if they fire Cristian Bucchi.
According to Calciomercato.it, the 43-year-old has caught the attention of Neroverdi bosses after a disappointing campaign.
So far this season, Bucchi has managed just one win, one draw and five Serie A defeats after taking over from Eusebio Di Francesco.
Zekic has impressed at Osijek in his homeland, knocking PSV Eindhoven out of the Europa League play-offs in July and currently sitting joint third in Croatia.
Sassuolo aren’t the only club keeping an eye on him, as Dinamo Moscow have also considered an offer for Zekic.
