The Italy international continues to be a top target for the Foxes.
There’s concrete interest from the defending Premier League champions Leicester on Sassuolo’s defender.
Claudio Ranieri continues to push for the ‘decisive’ signing the club needs to get back up on it’s feet. He’s certain the Francesco Acerbi from Sassuolo is just the man to rebuild his side’s leaky defense, according to Sky Sport 1.
However, Sassuolo are resisting Leicester’s advances. The 28-year old centerback is key to their objectives this season.
Leicester already put forward an offer for Acerbi but was shot down a few days ago.
Both clubs find themselves in similar places in the table. It’s up to Leicester to convince Sassuolo to let the player go. The Neroverdi are keen on landing a replacement before they give the green light to sell him.
