Sassuolo winger Domenico Berardi says his ideal club would be Liverpool, following reports that he could move teams this summer.
The 24-year-old has also been linked with a switch to AC Milan, and when asked about claims he could leave Sassuolo, he replied:
“If an offer arrives, be it from Milan or another club, I will evaluate it with my club. And if I hear that it is the right proposal, to be taken on the fly, this time I will say to Sassuolo: ‘I’ll take it’.”
“Being able to choose, I would play in Liverpool. Changing remains difficult for me, but it no longer frightens me, I would do it. The next goal is to play in Europe, but at a club where I can be used a lot, if not always. That is my priority.”
Berardi had a good season for Sassuolo despite the Serie A club finishing midtable. He made 37 appearances for the Italian side, scoring ten goals and contributing five assists.
The wide man has five caps for Italy after making his international debut last summer against France, although he hasn’t made Roberto Mancini’s last two squads.
Berardi generally plays off the right flank, cutting in onto his stronger left foot. He has also played occasionally as a striker and in the number 10 role.
With Daniel Sturridge leaving the club on a free transfer, Liverpool will be on the lookout for a new forward but it is not known whether Berardi is on their radar.
