Speaking about Scamacca’s future at Sassuolo, the club’s CEO Giovanni Carnevali said: ‘There were some calls from Italy.

‘But mainly from abroad, because there isn’t much possibility for investment in the Italian clubs at the moment. 

Carnevali went on to say: ‘Fortunately, the had been the overseas market too.’

‘All I want to do is to play football, but they [Dortmund] press me to make a decision now about my future […] So that means I have to make a decision soon.’ 

While Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted that it will be difficult for the Bundesliga giants to hold onto Haaland in the summer. 

Watzke said in an interview with Der Spiegel, as per Marca: ‘Who would give one of the best strikers in Europe away in the winter market if they didn’t have to?  

‘He will not leave in January. Dortmund is still in three competitions and we want to compete with the best teams.

‘Of course it’ll be difficult to retain him. However, we want to and we’ll try. Haaland will not leave in January, but in summer it will be difficult to keep him.’
