Sunderland’s Emanuele Giaccherini isn’t thinking about his club future as his focus is on Euro 2016 with Italy.

Giaccherini seemed set to depart Sunderland this summer but, after grabbing a goal for the Azzurri in their win over heavily-fancied Belgium, it has been tentatively suggested that he could be offered another chance to make an impact at the Stadium of Light.

The forward spent last season on loan at Bologna and they hope to land Giaccherini on a permanent basis, while fellow Serie A sides Fiorentina and Torino are also keen to snap him up.

The 31-year-old is due to fall out of contract next summer and, as such, Sunderland could be tempted to sell the player rather than gamble on keeping the Italian on Wearside, but for now his focus is on Euro 2016 rather than where his future lies, according to agent Giulio Marinelli.

He told Radio Blu: “There was activity around Giaccherini before the beginning of the Euros. He has only year of his contract left with Sunderland, so his price could be under 2million euros.

“It’s not a novelty that [Pantaleo] Corvino [Fiorentina director of football] holds Giaccherini in great esteem, but there is no news.

“Emanuele would be happy to come to Fiorentina, but right now he’s only thinking about the Euros and he won’t be taking any decisions on the short-term.”
