Reports suggest that Lazio have agreed personal terms with Domenico Berardi and are now working to find an agreement with Sassuolo.
Maurizio Sarri has made it clear that he expects the Biancocelesti to pick up four or five key reinforcements this summer following the team’s qualification to the Champions League.
It became apparent this season that Lazio had a lack of options on the bench, forcing them to focus on one competition rather than try to compete on multiple fronts, something Sarri is hoping will be resolved in the coming months.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Lazio have overcome competition from Roma, Milan and Napoli to agree a deal with Berardi, who is willing to sign a four-year contract worth €2.5 million net per season.
The Roman club are now working on defining a deal with Sassuolo, who’ll be paid at least €20 million for the 28-year-old winger. This will be paid in instalments, at least two, and some players could be included in the deal, like Matteo Cancellieri.
Updates are expected in the coming weeks, with Lazio keen to close out the deal and secure their first major signing of the summer transfer window.
This season, Berardi scored 12 goals and provided seven assists across 26 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo.
