Sassuolo attacker Gregoire Defrel is reportedly a target for Tottenham, West Ham, Leicester and Southampton this summer.

The 26-year-old scored 14 goals in 35 games in all competitions for Sassuolo last season and that has alerted several clubs across Europe.

Sassuolo recently lost manager Eusebio Di Francesco to Roma and are also expected to have interest in two more of their stars, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Domenico Berardi.

Tutto Mercato Web claims that the player’s agent will be in London this week to discuss a move for his client.

Frenchman Defrel has tremendous pace and technical ability, can play in several positions in the attacking third of the field and could be a potential star in the Premier League if he moves to England.
