Sassuolo rule out January transfer of Milan & Roma target Duncan

The Ghanaian is expected to stay at MAPEI Stadium - Citta del Tricolore, at least until the summer, club chief Giovanni Carnevali has said

Sassuolo chief executive officer Giovanni Carnevali has ruled out the sale of midfield duo Alfred Duncan and Stefano Sensi this January.

Owing to their fine performances in Serie A, the pair have attracted a lot of interest from top sides, with AC Milan the front-runners for their services.

Ghana international Duncan has also been linked to former club Inter Milan and AS Roma

"AC Milan on Sensi? The player has had requests from other Italian and foreign clubs, our will is to not give up our best players," Carnevali said, as reported by Calciomercato.

"In January we do not sell anyone, Duncan stays with us." 

Reports say AC Milan have set sights on securing the services Duncan should they lose Franck Kessie to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Rossoneri were said to be initially interested in Sensi but his higher price tag has shifted their focus to the €20 million-rated Ghana international.
