'Rather have Raphinha': Liverpool fans discuss potential £43m signing
Liverpool fans have been giving their thoughts today as the club were linked with a move for Italian winger, Domenico Berardi.
A report from The Express which cited Italian media, suggested that Berardi had emerged as a potential target for Jurgen Klopp.
The Sassuolo star has been good for Italy in the Euros so far. His hard-working performances on the wing have caught the eye, and he set up the opening goal against Turkey last week.
It’s claimed Berardi could be available for around £43m. Along with his teammate Manuel Locatelli, he’s among players at Sassuolo who could move on this summer.
For Liverpool, this summer is about addressing areas of need. A forward is on the agenda, with the likes of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri expected to be sold to make way.
Berardi, then, could be an interesting option. He scored 18 goals last season in Serie A. That sort of total, for a wide forward, is not too shabby at all.
But what do the Liverpool fans think about it? And is Berardi someone they feel would be a good addition?
Liverpool fans don’t seem impressed with links to Berardi
It’s quite surprising but a scan of Twitter suggests that Berardi wouldn’t actually be overly welcome at Anfield.
Despite playing well for Italy, some Liverpool supporters have picked up on some concerns they have.
With that, here’s a look at what some Reds fans had to say in response to today’s links with Domenico Berardi.
