Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali says that they have received offers from foreign clubs for Liverpool target Domenico Berardi.
He previously admitted Berardi could leave the club after telling Italian broadcaster Sportitalia: “I cannot promise that Berardi will stay. It is not a question of money.”
Offers received from outside Italy
Now, he has revealed that Sassuolo have received offers for the forward and added that all offers have come from outside Serie A which is an interesting note.
“I didn’t speak to Milan about Berardi, but I have talked to my friend (Inter CEO Beppe) Marotta about [Giacomo] Raspadori, but our intention is to keep him,” said Carnevali, as reported by Football Italia.
“I think Berardi’s valuation is more suited to a move abroad and we only received offers from foreign clubs.”
This aligns with what La Gazzetta dello Sport reported at the end of June.
Only Premier League clubs can afford Berardi
They claimed that the financial repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic mean that Italian clubs cannot afford to sign Berardi and so his Premier League suitors are the favourites to land him.
As Anfield Central covered in June, the winger revealed his desire to join Liverpool in the past and so signing him would be a fairly straightforward affair if an agreement could be reached with Sassuolo.
Berardi would be a good option but the best?
Yet, I wonder if he’s the perfect option. Of course, someone like Mbappe would cost over £100m even with one year left on his contract.
That said, someone like Donyell Malen would be ideal for the Reds as he’s cheap, versatile, clinical and blessed with unbelievable pace.
