The Reds continue to eye Sassuolo’s attacker in January.
While the immediate future of Domenico Berardi seems likely to remain in Sassuolo, rumors are beginning to insist on a move in July.
Juventus holds all the cards to sign Berardi, especially given head coach Massimiliano Allegri’s latest words of admiration for the Italy international. But Liverpool and Inter continue to try to run the table against them.
According to a report of the Gazzetta di Modena, the 22-year old winger is being followed by Liverpool who in turn do have the funds to bid higher than Juve’s €25 million option. It’s not a guaranteed fact that Berardi will land in Turin in July.
Berardi is one of Italy’s most promising footballers. He has 40 goals in 93 Serie A games but despite a stunning start to the season this is the worse top-flight campaign he’s having so far in his career due to a knee injury which has kept him out of action for over three months. The Italian starlet returned to action last week-end and is been heavily linked with leaving Sassuolo in the summer as many top European clubs want to sign him.
Liverpool sent scouts to Italy to observe Berardi in the early part of the season before he was injured. Now with Berardi returning to the pitch, it’s likely scouts will begin again flocking to the MAPEI Stadium to observe him.
