Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have been linked with a move for Italian midfielder Davide Frattesi.

According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato, Davide Frattesi has been in fine form for Sassuolo, and Tottenham and Manchester United are keeping tabs on his situation. The report adds that Serie A giants Inter Milan are keen on signing the 23-year-old as well.

The 23-year-old is highly rated in Serie A, and he has managed to break into the Italian national setup as well. There is no doubt that Frattesi has a massive future ahead of him. And it will be interesting to see whether Manchester United and Tottenham can snap him up.

Tottenham have an excellent midfield base with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur. But they can use someone who will add goals to the side. Frattesi has scored three goals in nine Serie A appearances this season  and he will add a new dimension to Antonio Conte’s midfield.

Furthermore, the report from Calciomercato claims that the player likes Tottenham and could be open to the move. Meanwhile, Manchester United have made an enquiry for Frattesi recently and can use a box-to-box midfielder as well. Frattesi will be the ideal partner for Casemiro and add defensive cover and goals to the side.

The Italian international could be an upgrade on Fred and Scott McTominay, thus explaining the interest from Manchester United. The 23-year-old is still far from his peak and will likely develop further. Working with managers like Conte and Erik ten Hag will only help Frattesi improve and fulfil his tremendous potential.

Sassuolo are fully aware of the increased interest in the player from European clubs, and it will be interesting to see if they are willing to cash in on the player at the end of the season.

Frattesi has a long-term contract with Sassuolo until the summer of 2026, and the Serie A club are under no pressure to sell him at this time. It seems that his suitors might have to fork out a lucrative fee to tempt the Neroverdito sell him.
