Sassuolo director Carnevali insists no pressure to sell stars

Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali insists they're not under pressure to sell any of their best players.

Gianluca Scamacca and Giacomo Raspadori are among Sassuolo stars wanted by bigger clubs.

"We won't sell all the players that other clubs want. It won't be easy to keep hold of them, but we haven't received important offers yet," Carnevali told Sky Italia.

“The next season will be the tenth in a row in Serie A for us, we may sell a couple of players, but we must pay attention. Selling players doesn't mean becoming weaker. We want to build and invest in young players.

"I am convinced that we'll receive important offers and I'll be happy because it would mean that we've worked well."

On Scamacca, he added: “He would be a good player for Inter and Milan and it would be good not to see him go abroad. However, as of today, it's easier for him to join a foreign league."
