Sassuolo Ace Hints at Leaving and Talks Scamacca to PSG

Maxime Lopez is coming off a solid season and has attracted the interest of a few clubs, although the negotiation for him to depart Sassuolo are in their early stages. The midfielder alluded to transferring in an interview with French newspaper La Provence.

“Honestly, I am wondering whether the time has come for me to switch teams. I am fine with the Neroverdi, and I speak Italian fluently, which helps me in everyday life. I feel at home here like when I was at Marseille. I do not know whether the moment for me to leave has come, we will see. Several teams have expressed interest in me, and my side could use an extra profit. There is nothing concrete at the moment. I will ponder it when things heat up.”

Maxime Lopez addressed the buzz linking his Sassuolo teammate Gianluca Scamacca to PSG.

“I jokingly told him not to go there. I am from Marseille, so I do not care for them. However, I reckon it would be fantastic to play next to Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Lionel Messi. I believe he is thinking about it, even though he told me that he preferred staying in Italy in January. On the other hand, the Parisians are dreamy for foreign players thanks to their stars, their resources and the lifestyle they provide.”

Our Take on Maxime Lopez Potentially Leaving Sassuolo

The 24-year-old has been brilliant since joining Serie A and is a little underrated. The Neroverdi signed him for peanuts, and they could settle for a relatively low fee and still register major earnings. He was linked to Roma in the recent past, but they might go after a different type of player after signing Nemanja Matic. Any club looking for a midfield maestro would be wise to pursue him.
