Villarreal have completed the signing of Sassuolo forward Nicola Sansone on a five-year-deal.
Head coach Marcelino has been to add reinforcements to his squad after Barcelona exercised their buy-back clause on Denis Suarez.
Sansone offers versatility to the LaLiga club and can play out wide or as a secondary striker.
He joins compatriot Roberto Soriano at Villarreal after playing a key role in Sassuolo’s unlikely qualification for the Europa League last season.
Sansone has one Italy cap to his name and scored seven goals for Sassuolo last season.
