Liverpool have joined the race for Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli.

Locatelli enjoyed a successful Euro 2020 campaign with Italy - who beat England in a dramatic final via penalties at Wembley.

As a result, Locatelli caught the attention of several European giants, including Serie A side Juventus and Premier League club Arsenal.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Liverpool will look to make a transfer swoop for the midfielder this summer.

Liverpool will need to act quickly though, as Juve a closing in on a deal for the midfielder this week.

The player's agent - who recently revealed that Mikel Arteta's men had made a £34million bid to secure his signature - said that Juventus remains Locatelli's No 1 destination.
