Tottenham director Paratici laying the groundwork to sign Manuel Locatelli, Domenico Berardi this summer

According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur director Fabio Paratici is laying the groundwork to secure the transfer of two Sassuolo players – Manuel Locatelli and Domenico Berardi this summer.

Paratici was named the managing director of football at Tottenham earlier this month. And it seems like the ex-Juventus director has made a swift to start life in his new job, despite still staying in his homeland, Italy.

Indeed, the 48-year-old has already identified transfer targets for Tottenham and has already started to lay the groundwork to secure the deals swiftly for two players from Serie A side Sassuolo in Manuel Locatelli and Domenico Berardi.

Both the players enjoyed a fine 2020/21 campaign with the Neroverdi and are currently setting the stage on fire in the UEFA Euro 2020 with the Italian national team.

While Berardi played a starring role in the Azzurri’s 3-0 win over Turkey in their opening fixture last week, Locatelli scored a brace on Wednesday as they beat Switzerland by the same scoreline.

Berardi, a winger in top form, would be an excellent addition to the side, considering that Spurs have already lost Gareth Bale after his loan deal ran out while the likes of Erik Lamela and Steven Bergwijn have been woefully out of form.

Locatelli, a central midfielder who can play as a No.6 or as a No. 8 can be the ideal foil for someone like Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the middle of the park. With Moussa Sissoko not getting any younger, the former AC Milan star would add quality and depth to the Spurs’ midfield unit.

While all this sounds well and good, Tottenham first need to resolve their managerial situation. For a while it looked like things had been taken care of with Paulo Fonseca set to take over. However, talks are now reported to have broken down, with Gennaro Gattuso likely to become the new manager now. (h/t The Athletic)

So, it remains to be seen if the change in the managerial candidates also leads to changes in the transfer targets.
