Ferreyra snubs Sassuolo for Anderlecht

Sassuolo and Frosinone appear to have missed out on Facundo Ferreyra, as the Benfica striker is heading to RSC Anderlecht.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Serie A clubs were thwarted in their negotiations, although the Neroverdi were the only ones genuinely close to a deal.

Anderlecht dived in with a proposal and are expected to sign Ferreyra on loan for 18 months at a cost of €1.5m.

The Argentine centre-forward turns 28 in March and so far this season has scored one goal in eight competitive games for Benfica.
