Juventus are said to have an agreement with Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi, although an official agreement between the two clubs has yet to be reached.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are prepared to offer the 29-year-old a four-year contract in order to lure him away from Mapei.

Berardi and his team are believed to be pushing for a move to the Allianz Stadium and are now waiting for Cristiano Giuntoli to make an official approach with Sassuolo.

Almost exactly a year ago, Berardi signed a new deal with Sassuolo until the summer of 2027, which came with a significant pay rise from €1.8m a year to around €3m.

The Italian star is valued at between €25m and €30m and it is believed that Juventus will push for an initial loan deal with a possible purchase option or obligation.

To reduce the cost of the operation, Juventus also hope to include one of their youngsters by moving in the other direction.

Samuel Iling-Junior and Matias Soule have been suggested as players who could move to Sassuolo, although the Englishman is said to be more attractive to the Neroverdi club.
