Two Algerians could be heading to Sassuolo
Serie A side Sassuolo are interested in Algerian duo Rachid Ghezzal and Adam Ounas, according to reports. The Italian club are currently 14th in the league table and are looking to reinforce their squad in the January transfer window.
The deal for Adam Ounas, which has been reported by Il Mattino in Italy, would be a loan move to Sassuolo until the end of the season. This could be a brilliant move for the youngster as he gains valuable experience in Serie A to help develop his play.
Ounas has one assist in 11 appearances for the current league leaders. He made his debut for the Algerian national team last September. It is understood that Napoli would also get Matteo Politano as part of any potential deal.
However, Sassuolo are also considering a move for Monaco winger Rachid Ghezzal to replace the outgoing Politano. This is according to Sky in Italy.
Ghezzal has struggled to make any real impact since his move from Lyon, but Monaco would make a big profit if they sold the 25-year-old, after picking him up on a free transfer.
The Algerian international has two goals and two assists in 15 matches this season in Ligue 1, and has failed to live up to the high standards set by Bernardo Silva.
