Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Southampton are on the trail of Italian striker Domenico Berardi.

The 18-year-old has been starring for Serie B side Sassuolo scoring three goals in 10 appearances in the process.

His agent, Giuseppe Galli, says Premier League champions City have joined Juventus and Roma in the race for the teenager’s signature and have sent scouts frequently to watch him playing for Sassuolo.

Galli said: ‘Juventus, Roma and Manchester City seeking Berardi? These are not rumours – this is real interest. During recent weeks these clubs have sent observers to see Sassuolo’s matches on many occasions.

‘Manchester City’s scouts have often come from England.’

Sassuolo’s general director, Nereo Bonato, says clubs have yet to contact them but says Liverpool and Southampton have requested to attend matches.

He told calciomercato.it: ‘We have received accreditation requests to view our games in recent times from English clubs such as Liverpool and Southampton. But it is too early to talk about the market so there has been no contact with any club.’

Bonato said: ‘Berardi has important qualities and certainly he deserves attention, but I think the guy has yet to grow and that Sassuolo is the right place for him to do it.

‘We would like to keep the whole team until the end of the season, then in June we’ll see.’
