The Frenchman is reluctantly on the market this January.
Sassuolo’s AD Giovanni Carnevali spoke to Sky Sport discussing the club’s stance on the transfer market.
“Defrel? There’s nothing new at the moment. Our intention is to stay the way we are and not make costly sales in January, but we’ll have to see..”
Roma have been onto the attacker for weeks now. As confirmed by John Solano of RomaPress, the Giallorossi have met with Defrel’s agent to discuss a possible deal.
It should also be noted that the agent, Giampiero Pocetta, is also the agent of super talent Lorenzo Pellegrini, who currently plays for Sassuolo as well.
