Italian side Sassuolo boss Eusebio Di Francesco has revealed that the club’s striker and Tottenham target Domenico Berardi is presently in London on holidays and not to sign for the White Hart Lane side as widely rumoured.
When asked about Berardi, he said: “Tottenham? Berardi is on holiday in London, he didn’t know anything and I asked him if it was true… I don’t think there is basis, but then in football anything can happen.”
The 21-year old Sassuolo star was in superb form last season scoring 15 Serie A goals in 34 matches but has struggled to replicate those heights netting just twice since August. The £29.5m man however remains high in the thoughts of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and a move could be a possibility.
Fans of the North London club have urged their Argentine manager to add quality forward options to the team so as to ease the goalscoring burden on English striker Harry Kane as they bid to strengthen grip on a top four place in the Premier League.
