European giant in advanced-talks to sign favourite of Chelsea boss

Chelsea have work to do this summer if they’re to build on their successful season and challenge in Europe, with the fans in the Transfer Tavern drawing out a list of ideal recruits.

Many believe that additional numbers in the wide areas should be secured to provide added depth to the squad, with one name that regularly gets thrown about being Sassuolo ace Domenico Berardi.

The 22-year-old has struggled with injury problems with the Italian side this season but CalcioMercato state Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is a big fan. However, the Blues may have missed their chances.

The reports suggest Inter Milan are in advanced talks for the talented winger, as the club’s new owners seek a busy summer to close the gap on Italy’s dominant side Juventus – and reignite Inter, who are seen as a sleeping giant.

Inter will have to pay a heavy price for Berardi’s services though, as he’s valued at £35m, but Chelsea could still enter the running – and our landlord believes he could be seen as the ideal replacement for Eden Hazard, should the Belgian be snapped-up by Real Madrid.

Would Berardi be a good addition for Chelsea? Let us know in the comments below!
