Blues boss wants Sassuolo striker this summer
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has asked the board of the club to buy £21m-rated Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi this summer, according to media reports in Italy.
It’s being reported that Chelsea are constantly scouting the 22-year old, and Conte has requested that he is brought in at the end of the season.
He had the option to go to Juventus two years ago but passed in favour of getting regular playing time.
The forward has made only six Serie A appearances this season due to a knee injury but returned to action at the start of January, but with a record of 40 goals in 96 league games in his career so far, Berardi is considered one of the brightest prospects in Italian football at the moment, and Chelsea are the favourites to sign him.
