Arsenal have made an enquiry for Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi, according to a report from Italy.
Gazzetta.it report that the most significant enquiries for Domenico Berardi so far have come from the Premier League. Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United have all enquired with Sassuolo about the winger.
The player himself is reportedly ready for a new experience away from Sassuolo, and he’s drawing particular interest right now as he takes on the European Championships with Italy.
Berardi scored 17 goals and assisted a further seven in just 30 appearances in Serie A this season, though seven of his goals were from the penalty spot.
He’s spent his entire senior career with Sassuolo so far, so at 26 on the back of his best goalscoring season, you can see why he might think this is a good time for a move.
For the time being, the Italian winger is away at the Euros. He provided an assist in their opening game against Turkey, following four goals in his previous four games for his country.
Arsenal have reportedly been scouting Berardi for over a year now. But as we pointed out all the way back in March 2020, the fact that he plays on the right is a bit of an issue.
Mikel Arteta already has Nicolas Pepe and Bukayo Saka, and he needs a natural left-winger if anything. So although the stats suggest Berardi is starting to hit his prime years as an attacker, it would be a strange move at a potential €50m.
