Sassuolo: 'No Acerbi or Defrel sale'

Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali confirms they “turned down” a Leicester City offer for Francesco Acerbi, but “Roma didn’t ask for Gregoire Defrel.”

The Neroverdi have been at the centre of transfer speculation this month and are resisting proposals for their star names.

“Roma did not directly ask us for Defrel and in any case we won’t sell him in this transfer session because we don’t want to weaken the squad,” director general Carnevali told Tuttomercatoweb.

Baldissoni: 'Roma need someone ready'

Roma director Mauro Baldissoni confirmed they are looking for “a player who is ready to make the difference” straight away.

The Giallorossi are hunting on the market for a midfielder and have also approached Sassuolo for wide forward Gregoire Defrel.

Considering how well Roma are doing at the moment, is Baldissoni not tempted to do something a little crazy to bolster the squad?

“Something a little crazy is irresponsible and we need to run a club responsibly,” he told Rai Sport.

Roma linked with Muriel move

Roma have been re-linked with a move for Luis Muriel of Sampdoria, after previous interest had died down.

The Giallorossi are in the market for a striker, but speculation over moves for Jese of PSG or West Ham United’s Sofiane Feghouli has tailed off.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the club remain keen on Gregoire Defrel from Sassuolo, but such a move is more likely to happen in the summer.

‘Pellegrini won’t join Roma, Defrel…’

Lorenzo Pellegrini’s agent rules out a January move to Roma, but Sassuolo teammate Gregoire Defrel “could be a different matter”.

The Giallorossi have been linked with both players, with Defrel possibly deputising for Mohamed Salah when he goes to the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt.

“Pellegrini? I don’t think he’ll leave Sassuolo in January,” Giampiero Pocetta said on TeleRadioStereo.

‘English clubs want Defrel’

Sassuolo’s director general Giovanni Carnevali insists “no official offer” from Napoli for Gregoire Defrel, but bids have come from England and Spain.

The French forward has been linked with the Partenopei in January, and scored a late equaliser for the Neroverdi at San Paolo on Monday.

“Defrel is one of four foreigners in our team, and we signed him [from Cesena] because he has significant potential,” Carnevali said on Radio Goal.
