Nicola in talks with Sassuolo?

It is reported that former Crotone Coach Davide Nicola is in talks to take over at Sassuolo.

The 45-year-old has been out of work since leaving the Pitagorici midway through last season.

The Neroverdi hot-seat is still currently occupied by Beppe Iachini, although the former Palermo and Udinese boss’ position is thought to be under threat after an underwhelming Serie A season.

As such, TMW Web reports that Sassuolo owner Giorgio Squinzi is currently holding negotiations with Nicola with a view to offering him the job.

Nicola, who memorably steered Crotone to safety from a seemingly hopeless position in the 2016-17 campaign, has also been linked with Cagliari and Chievo in recent times.
