Sassuolo continuing to make smart purchases on the transfer market, the latest being the purchase of one of Crotone’s top defensive performers.
Following the loans of Marcello Trotta and Diego Falcinelli to Crotone, Sassuolo have bought themselves one of the standout defenders in Serie B last season. As per Sportitalia, the Neroverdi have signed center-back Gian Marco Ferrari from the Calabrian club for a fee of €5 million and have decided to leave the 24-year old on loan at his former club for the season.
Ferrari had been a part of the exodus of players who left Parma after their relegation to Serie D due to bankruptcy and signed with Crotone last summer via a free transfer. His performances were key in helping Crotone break into the top flight for the first time in club history. Appearing in 41 games last season in Serie B, he collected a goal and two assists.
