Davide Frattesi, born on 22 September 1999 in Rome, is an Italian midfielder, currently playing for Sassuolo and the Italian Under-21 National Team, he is one of the most interesting prospects on the national scene. The young talent was bought by Sassuolo in the summer of 2017, after growing up in the RomaU17. Until the current 2021/22 season the young Frattesi was on loan in various teams such as Ascoli, Empoli, and then Monza before finally returning to Sassuolo, where today he is a fundamental pawn for the nero-verdi midfield. 

Getting the attention of the big Italian clubs, like Inter and Milan, Frattesi is an exceptional midfielder that can do almost any role in the midfield. The 22 years old finds application in midfield at 2, but also in midfield at 3, in both cases, he plays the role of central/holding midfielder. But he can also be found on the left side (natural right-footer) and in his career, he also held the role of an advanced midfielder. Davide Frattesi has the qualities and skills to be described also as a "box to box" midfielder, that is, able to contribute to the team both in the offensive development, with insertions, and in the defensive phase, allowing him to recover many balls in defensive. With his 184cm, Frattesi is a very tough midfielder with very good physical endurance, even if he is not the strongest on the pitch, he will give all when fighting for the ball and has no problem trying to dribble in the open field, engage in shoulder-to-shoulder tackles. The young talent possesses good speed and dribble, making him not a very dangerous player in offensive situations, having the ability not only to dribble and run with the ball but also to make insertions without the ball on his feet. 


Frattesi is definitely an intelligent footballer, able to read game situations and adapt his style to them. In the development phase, he can be found playing the ball fast and precisely, and when given space he will make smart insertions between the central defender and full-back. The Italian midfielder has a good vision of the game and excellent feet, skilled with both the right and the left, Frattesi often manages to find his teammates and send them on goal with excellent through passes. 


There is no doubt that Davide Frattesi is a very interesting footballer, able to do all the midfielder phases, and possesses a strong tactical intelligence. In his first season with the nero-verdi shirt and his first year in Serie A, Frattesi is clearly a player of excellent qualities who has already captured the attention of the great teams in Italy and Europe.
