West Ham United are reportedly keen to sign midfielder Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from FcInterNews who claims that the Hammers have already made an approach for the 22-year-old star.
Central midfield is definitely an area where West Ham manager David Moyes needs to strengthen in the summer.
Mark Noble is set to retire at the end of the season whilst Alex Kral will almost certainly be sent back to Spartak Moscow after an underwhelming loan spell at the London Stadium.
It could be argued that Moyes actually needs to sign two central midfielders in the summer transfer window. And it seems as though the Scot already has his eye on one in particular…
West Ham eyeing move to sign Davide Frattesi
FcInterNews claims that the Hammers have made an official approach to sign the Italy under-21 International from Sassuolo.
West Ham reportedly could face competition from the likes of Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund for Frattesi’s signature, however.
We believe that the Sassuolo ace would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers.
He is an orthodox central midfielder by trade but he can also operate in the number 10 position.
The 22-year-old has bagged four goals and two assists in 31 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo this season (Who Scored).
During those outings, Frattesi has averaged 1.4 tackles, one interception and 1.5 clearances per game (Who Scored).
The Italian ace has made 33.8 passes on average per match and has recorded an impressive 83.4% completion rate (Who Scored).
Frattesi is an incredibly good footballer with impressive technical ability, a fine engine and an attitude of the very highest level.
He could be available for around €25 million (£20 million) this summer according to Sempre Inter.
We believe that would be great value for the Hammers. And if Moyes does bring Davide Frattesi to West Ham for around £20 million this summer, we would be very happy indeed.
