AC Milan are in the running for Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi but there is plenty of competition and a big asking price, a report claims.
It is now no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for a new winger, one with different characteristics to Alexis Saelemaekers in the sense that they are more of a direct goal threat. After a season with 17 goals and 8 assists for Sassuolo, there is arguably no better target than Berardi.
According to the latest from La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FootballItalia), Sassuolo have set a €40m asking price for Berardi because they are aware that Milan, Lazio, Liverpool and Leicester City are all keen on signing the 26-year-old after his impressive performances at Euro 2020.
The right-sided winger turns 27 in August and has impressed for Italy at Euro 2020 so far.
It is worth noting that Berardi’s contract with Sassuolo runs until June 2024, so the Neroverdi are in a good negotiating position in that regard, but it is believed that Sassuolo will let the player choose his destination rather than force him to go to the team offering the most.
