The pursuit of Davide Frattesi continues

Roma has been trying to get Davide Frattesi back into their team for some time. The 22 year-old is in talks to return to the club following his 2017 exit, when he was sold to Sassuolo on a permanent deal.

Frattesi caught the attention of nearly every big club in Italy in recent months thanks to his breakout season with the Neroverdi. But his strong ties to the Giallorossi have them on the verge of reuniting with the midfielder.

So let’s explore the midfielder’s recent successes and his explosion over the past couple of seasons.

Hunt for Frattesi

Sassuolo and Roma opened negotiations for Frattesi regarding a return to the Italian capital. However, the 22 year-old recently extended his contract in March and is tied to the club until 2026.

After loan spells at Ascoli, Empoli and Monza, the midfielder played thirty-eight competitive games for Sassuolo this past season, scoring five goals and providing several assists.

Several clubs including Inter and Milan expressed interest in his services, but the youngster preferred to return to his boyhood club Roma, who were also keen to bring him back.

Roma and Sassuolo still haven’t reached an agreement for a transfer fee but reports claim they’re getting closer. The Giallorossi’s preference of reuniting with Frattesi won’t come cheap, though.

Two of the club’s most highly rates youngsters, namely 19 year-old Felix Afena-Gyan and 18 year-old Christian Volpato, could become part of the deal as well. Though, if Roma successfully pull-off a deal for Frattesi, the Italian international certainly makes Jose Mourinho’s more solid and entertaining.

Frattesi’s successes so far

In his position in the central midfield, he has already had many a success. Frattesi was born in the Italian capital and played for Roma as a youth before being sold to US Sassuolo in 2017. At the beginning of his time at US Sassuolo, he was often substituted in the final minutes without being firmly on the pitch.

In August 2018, the midfielder moved to Serie B club Ascoli on loan until July 2019. Just a week later, on September 2, Frattesi made his debut in the team in a 2-0 loss to Perugia where he was replaced by Enrico Baldini after 61 minutes. He played his first full game for Ascoli on September 15, a 1-0 home win over Lecce. Frattesi finished his loan spell at Ascoli with 33 appearances, most of them in the first eleven. In July 2019, Frattesi was loaned to Serie B club Empoli for one season. He started his commitment to the team on August 11 when he was substituted for Filippo Bandinelli in the first half of the 2-1 home win against Reggina in the second round of the Coppa Italia. From September on, he regularly fought for the club and contributed to the victories against Cittadella and Pisa, where he also celebrated his first professional and winning goals.

Frattesi finished his loan spell at Empoli with 41 appearances, 5 goals and several assists. In September 2020, he was loaned to Serie B promoted club Monza for one season. From October, Frattesi was also a regular there and scored a few goals for the club, eight in total, which also won him a personal bet with coach Cristian Brocchi. Moreover, he took part in the 2016 UEFA European U17 Championship with the Italy U17s. With the Italian U19s, he participated in the 2018 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, scoring two goals and helping to defeat Portugal after extra time. In 2021, he continued with the U21 National Championship. He was named to Italy’s senior squad for the 2022 Finalissima against Argentina on June 1 2022 and for the 2022-2023 UEFA Nations League group matches against Germany, Hungary, England and Germany. His current market value is 20 million euro.

It remains to be seen which successes Frattesi can celebrate in case he returns to his boyhood club Roma and whether the 22 year-old will also be seen at the next World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year.
