Earlier in the day it was reported that Leicester City tabled an offer for Francesco Acerbi, however, Sassuolo have no intention of letting him go.
Claudio Ranieri is said to be a big fan of Acerbi and will try to persuade him to move to the Premier League in the upcoming transfer window. Despite Leicester’s 10 million euro offer, Sassuolo have rejected their advances as they do not want to lose a leader in what is an already struggling side.
It was also reported that Sassuolo would hold out for 12-14 million euros, however, it now appears that the neroverdi won’t part ways with the defender unless it is significantly higher than that. All in all, it seems Acerbi will not be joining Leicester. That being said, mercato season is crazy and could change in an instance.
