Domenico Berardi

Berardi has been playing for Sassuolo over a long period since making the leap into the senior team from youth ranks in 2012.

However, in the last two seasons, under the tutelage of Roberto De Zerbi – who recently left the club to join Shakhtar Donetsk, Berardi has become one of the top attackers in Serie A side. 

Furthermore, his consistency has also helped him retain his place in the national team, earning 14 caps thus far.

Leicester City on Transfer-market

Leicester have been active in the transfer market, confirming the transfer of Patson Daka and are also closing in on Boubakary Soumare.

The Foxes have opted against the permanent signing of Cengiz Under from AS Roma as he spent the entire 2020/21 season on the sidelines due to injury.

Now, Berardi has been identified as one of the top targets to strengthen the wide position, and he really has the quality to succeed in the Premier League.
