All praise this season of young Italian strikers has been directed towards Torino’s Andrea Belotti.
The forward has struck 27 goals in all competitions this season, and has looked the real deal.
The club should instead turn to his compatriot, Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi.
The Italian has been sidelined with a knee injury for much of this season, but interest in the player is still high.
Italian publication Calciomercato have linked the player with a summer move to Juventus, but the Citizens should move quickly to secure his signature.
Berardi struck 31 goals between the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons, and has been lethal in an average Sassuolo side. His stock on the market is much lower than that of Belotti’s, so he will cost a fraction of the fee.
His versatility makes him a viable backup option, as the forward can also play from the wing.
Berardi would provide an excellent replacement for Iheanacho, and City should move fast to sign the promising forward.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
