Chelsea have expressed interest in Sassuolo attacker Domenico Berardi.
Sportitalia says the Blues have made enquiries into Berardi’s availability, while adding Borussia Dortmund and West Ham are also tracking the Italy star.
Reports last week claimed the Stamford Bridge outfit had failed with an £85million bid to sign Federico Chiesa with Juventus unwilling to open talks over the winger they had signed only last summer.
But the latest reports out of Italy now claim the Champions League winners have switched their focus to Chiesa’s international team-mate Berardi, who has two years remaining on his Sassuolo contract.
Berardi scored 17 goals and laid on a further eight assists in 30 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo last season.
