Sampdoria have rejected a last minute approach from Inter for midfielder Lucas Torreira according to a report from Premium Sport.
The Nerazzurri made a loan with redemption offer which was swiftly knocked back by the Genoese outfit. Despite being rejected once, Inter will keep trying to convince La Samp to part ways with the highly rated Uruguayan midfielder using the same transfer formula in what remains of the mercato.
The 21-year-old has attracted a wealth of interest in recent months including from Juventus and Napoli within Italy. Torreira is under contract at the Marassi through to the summer of 2022 and Sampdoria are likely to command a big fee for him.
If Inter are unable to convince Sampdoria to part with Torreira, they will focus their attention on Stephane M’Bia and Godfred Donsah instead. M’Bia currently plies his trade in China with Hebei Fortune while Donsah is with Bologna and has long been followed by the Nerazzurri among others.
