Inter Milan are at the front of the queue to sign Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi, according to reports.

The Italian has found it hard to get going this season in Serie A, with injuries hampering his minutes on the pitch.

Berardi has only started 11 league matches this term with two goals and three assists to his name with a further five goals in four appearances in the Europa League.

However, his knee problem isn’t putting off Chelsea in the pursuit of the 22-year-old, with Calciomercato claiming that the Londoners still want to land their man.

There is the potential, though, for the Blues to lose out on Berardi to Inter Milan with the Italian giants understood to be closing in on a deal for the striker after holding talks.

The report continues by saying that the striker could command a fee of up to £35million and is keen on a move to the San Siro.
