Alfredo Pedulla is reporting that AC Milan are keeping tabs on Sassuolo right winger Domenico Berardi as the player will almost certainly leave this summer. Pedulla states that there are a number of clubs in the Premier League interested in the player but notes that Lazio and Milan are the hottest name for the player. The Italy international has been doing well at the Euros following a season where he scored 17 goals and provided 8 assists. He knows the league well hence needs less of an adjustment period as Milan look to upgrade on Samu Castillejo and bringing in a starter ahead of Alexis Saelemaekers.

L’Equipe via MilanLive.it are reporting that Sassuolo are willing to listen to offers for the player but they value him at about 50 million euros which is a huge asking price. There are varying figures being reported from 30-50 million euros but either way a big investment would be needed from Milan to sign Berardi.
