A select round-up of the latest news relating to Tottenham Hotspur…
The 21-year-old is predominantly a right winger although he can also operate on the opposite flank or as a secondary striker if required, and while he has a contract with Sassuolo until the summer of 2019 that has not stopped him being linked with an exit.
Despite his tender age Berardi has already played 115 times for the Italian club, scoring 44 goals and providing 28 assists to date.
Tottenham could certainly do with some additional fire-power to cover for any future loss through injury or suspension of first-choice forward Harry Kane, and Berardi’s versatility could make him the perfect candidate.
In other news, the Daily Star reports that Tottenham target Saido Berahino has been given a lifeline at his current club West Bromwich Albion despite his failure to make any significant impact this season.
Tottenham failed in a bid to sign the England under-21 international last summer and the Guardian suggested just last week that Spurs could move for him again following after Clinton N’Jie was ruled out for two to three months.
But now Baggies manager Tony Pulis has challenged the 22-year-old to show his best at The Hawthorns as 2016 approaches.
"He has to be playing as many games as he can and doing what he does well, which is scoring goals," Pulis said.
What that remains for Tottenham's alleged ongoing interest remains to be seen.
