Sassuolo attacker Grégoire Defrel is reportedly a target for Tottenham, West Ham United, Leicester City and Southampton this summer.
The 26-year-old (27 next June) Frenchman possesses tremendous pace and technical ability, he can play in several positions, but you keep coming back to his age, it just doesn't fit our transfer policy. he is too old for a player with no experience in the Premier League. We couldn't wait two years for him to adapt, that is the risk we run. At this stage in our development as a club, that isn't what we need so I don't see that the reported interest is genuine.
Italian news roundup website Tutto Mercato Web are claiming that the player’s agent will be in London this week to discuss a move for his client. Reading between the lines that means he is hawking his client around and the clubs mentioned are club he would like to sell his client to, not clubs interested in buying his client.
These trips are quite normal, an agent will have a meeting with a club and will give them a sales pitch basically, for their client. It is highly unlikely we would be interested.
