West Ham should make Domenico Berardi their marquee summer signing

Domenico Berardi of Italy looks on prior to the training session at Centro Tecnico Federale di Coverciano on May 30, 2018 in Florence, Italy.

West Ham United should make a move for the Sassuolo forward this summer.

The former coach of Manchester City, Chilean Manuel Pellegrini (L), arrives for the draw of the Copa Sudamericana football tournament, in Santiago, on July 12, 2016.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will surely be looking to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this summer, in an effort to add a certain level of potency to his side's attacking play.

Andy Carroll has proven to be totally unreliable from a fitness perspective, whilst the jury is still out on whether Javier Hernandez is actually effective when playing for a team who doesn't dominate possession.

Pellegrini must be looking to freshen up his attacking options at West Ham this summer, and with that in mind, the Chilean should consider making a move for Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi.

The 23-year-old is most comfortable when operating in the right wing role, but he can also be used as a central striker, and that kind of versatility would surely appeal to the Hammers.

The Italy international has chalked up 64 goals and 45 assists in 192 appearances in all competitions for Sassuolo - a rather impressive return for someone still so young.

Berardi possesses blistering pace, impeccable technique and is cool and composed when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.

He is also a hard worker, and is willing to make tireless runs into the channels in order to create more space for his teammates.

The 23-year-old is a real talent, and he seems to be on the verge of exploding onto the world stage.

According to Calcio Mercato, he could be available this summer for somewhere in the region of €30 million (£26.5 million), and that would be a small price for West Ham to pay for someone with such precocious talent.
