Reds eye Berardi swoop
Sassuolo have confirmed Juventus aren't the only club interested in winger Domenico Berardi.
Sassuolo bought the full registration rights to Berardi in the summer from Juve after Italy's co-ownership system came to and end, costing £7.2million.
The Serie A champions have an option to buy the 21-year-old back next summer for £13m, but reports in Italy suggest they'll make a bid in January.
But Sassuolo have no intention to sell the Italy U21 international, who is also a target for Premier League club Liverpool, during the winter window.
"I can rule out a January move," Sassuolo’s managing director Giovanni Carnevali told Tuttosport. "That’s not part of our company policy.
"Last year, we invested €10m (£7.2m) in him. For now Berardi is completely a Sassuolo player and we’re not a club that needs to sell.
"With Juventus it’s an open discussion. It’s an advantage, but Juventus are not the only ones to be following Berardi."
