Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali confirms Inter asked for Giacomo Raspadori, but Milan might be out-priced for Domenico Berardi.
The chief spoke at an event in Rimini marking the start of the transfer market in Italy, which kicks off tomorrow.
Naturally, he was asked about the current negotiations in process for his players as they impress at UEFA EURO 2020.
“I didn’t speak to Milan about Berardi, but I have talked to my friend (Inter CEO Beppe) Marotta about Raspadori, but our intention is to keep him,” said Carnevali.
“I think Berardi’s valuation is more suited to a move abroad and we only received offers from foreign clubs.”
It’s reported Sassuolo are requesting €40m for Berardi to leave the Mapei Stadium, attracting interest from Milan, Lazio and Leicester City.
He scored 17 goals and provided eight assists in just 30 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo this season.
As for Raspadori, the striker only recently turned 21 and made his top flight debut this term, scoring six goals and earning a spot in the Italy squad for EURO 2020.
“Berardi, Jeremie Boga and Raspadori all received proposals, but we don’t need to sell in order to balance the books,” added Carnevali.
“Let’s not forget we sold Marlon to Shakhtar Donetsk, so we could settle as we are.”
