According to a report by Italian news outlet Quotidiano, as shared and translated by Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur have been convinced to take ‘concrete steps’ to sign Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi this summer.
The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing forwards?
Despite Spurs needing to adopt a sell-to-buy policy this summer amid their financial problems, there have been no shortage of links to star wingers and forwards so far this summer.
Indeed, Mohamed Bouhafsi first lifted the lid on Tottenham’s heavy interest and ‘advanced’ discussions for Borussia Monchengladbach winger Marcus Thuram (Twitter).
Thereafter, Fabrizio Romano relayed news from Gianluca Di Marzio that Spurs are also planning to move for VfB Stuttgart forward Nicolas Gonzalez (Twitter).
The Latest: Spurs to take ‘concrete steps’ for Berardi…
Now, Quotidiano have come out with a rather bold Spurs claim involving Italy international star Berardi, as the club are continually linked with attacking reinforcements.
They believe that new club managing director Fabio Paratici ‘calls’ for the player at Tottenham and his performance during Italy’s opening Euro 2020 game against Turkey has convinced Spurs to take ‘concrete steps’ for his signature.
As such, the outlet even say Tottenham will move ‘immediately’ after the probable announcement of Paulo Fonseca.
The Verdict: Do it Fabio…
Paratici’s links to signing Italian stars for Spurs have been in no short supply over the last few days.
However, Berardi arguably comes as one of the most exciting names, especially given his versatility as both an attacking midfielder and forward player (WhoScored).
The 26-year-old is a major threat in front of goal and regularly sets his sights on hitting the back of the net.
Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali also called him the ‘leader’ of their team (Tuttosport via allfootballapp) – with his Transfermarkt value of around £31.5 million looking like potentially good value for money.
