Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli continues to raise his transfer value following a standout season with Sassuolo.

Locatelli earned the start for the Italian national team in its Euro 2020 fixture against Switzerland in place of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, who remains sidelined due to his nagging knee injury.

Locatelli took full advantage of his first goal-scoring opportunity of the match as he slotted home an open goal chance to give Italy the key 1-0 lead over Switzerland.

Domenico Berardi was the catalyst behind this sequence, as he is doing well early on in mirroring his promising performance from Italy’s Euro 2020 opener against Turkey.

Italy aims for back-to-back early wins in this tournament.
