Assane Gnoukouri could be set for a debut call up to represent his country, Ivory Coast now that he is a part of Inter’s first team squad on a permanent basis.

This is confirmed albeit indirect by Ivory Coast coach Michel Dussuyer who on Tuesday 15 September travelled to Milan to speak to the 18 year old midfielder.

“He is a player that we have followed for some time. I felt it was important to see him and let him know that we are watching his performance. We are counting on him.”
