Fiorentina are reportedly interested in Sassuolo’s Domenico Berardi, but the €30m asking price makes a deal difficult.
The Viola are looking for reinforcements in the forward areas, and sporting director Pantaleo Corvino is a long-time admirer of the Italian international.
According to Sky Italia, they have asked the Neroverdi for information about the 23-year-old but a deal will be difficult.
Sassuolo would only accept a loan with obligation to buy, not an option, and their starting price is €30m.
That would be difficult for Fiorentina to meet, and they face competition from Roma, whose Coach is former Neroverdi boss Eusebio Di Francesco.
