Roma are in advanced negotiations with Sassuolo for forward Domenico Berardi, claim Sportitalia, seeking an Eusebio Di Francesco reunion.
This is certainly not the first time that the Giallorossi have been linked with Berardi, but this summer may well be the right time.
He turns 24 in August and had his least impressive season so far due to poor form, various injuries and coaching changes at Sassuolo.
Berardi managed only five goals and two assists in 33 competitive appearances for the Neroverdi.
However, this has also lowered the €30m price-tag and made him far more approachable for Roma.
Tottenham Hotspur and Fiorentina also remain interested in Berardi, who recently made his senior Italy debut.
He would relish a reunion with former Sassuolo Coach Di Francesco.
