At £25m, Tottenham have got to join Arsenal in race for player Conte wanted at Stamford Bridge in 2017
Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Sassuolo star Domenico Berardi for just £25million – but surely Tottenham need to join the Gunners?
Berardi has been in stunning form of late for Sassuolo – a club he has played for all his life, even during the two years he was on the books at Juventus.
In 12 Serie A outings, the Euro 2020 champion has scored seven goals and laid on four assists. It is a surprise to many that he remains at Sassuolo.
FantaCalcio have previously said that Arsenal are interested in luring him to North London – but they are unlikely to be the only team keen on Berardi.
Indeed, Tottenham have got to be keen on landing a player that Antonio Conte is clearly a fan of. Back in 2017, Conte told Chelsea to sign him.
That is, the Mirror said in 2017 that Conte informed the Blues hierarchy he wanted Berardi. Now, at £25million, surely Spurs will be interested again.
Why Conte and Tottenham need to challenge Arsenal for Berardi…
Tottenham have components of a side capable of a top-four challenge. Excellent wing-backs, Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris.
But they lack a right winger, among other things. Lucas Moura is good, but inconsistent. Reports continue to suggest Steven Bergwijn will be sold.
Spurs need a right-winger that can produce as regularly as Son. Berardi certainly does that, scoring goals and laying on assists.
A player Conte likes, at a bargain £25million and the prospect of beating Arsenal to his signature is certainly something that should attract Spurs.
