Official: Sassuolo sign Brignola

Sassuolo have officially signed Italy Under-21 forward Enrico Brignola from Benevento for a reported €3.5m.

A statement on Sassuolo’s website confirmed Brignola’s arrival, with midfielder Filippo Bandinelli and winger Federico Ricci moving on loan in the opposite direction.

The 19-year-old scored three goals in 19 appearances for the Stregoni last season, catching the eye despite their relegation from Serie A.

He had also been linked with Fiorentina and Atalanta but has instead put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Neroverdi, famed for their commitment to bringing through Italian youth.
