Sebastiano Esposito wants to stay at Inter for next season and follow his dream of playing for the Nerazzurri’s first team, according to FcInterNews.it.
The 16-year-old was involved in Inter’s third consecutive Campionato Primavera final tonight when Armando Madonna’s team took on Atalanta at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Esposito has numerous admirers both in Italy and abroad with reports Inter could include him in a deal to sign Nicolo Barella from Cagliari.
However, the forward would prefer to gain experience training under Antonio Conte next season than moving to another club on loan.
“In a world where one-club players are becoming ever more rare and people want everything immediately, Esposito is a player who goes against the grain,” the site wrote this evening.
“He is extremely attached to the Inter shirt and dreams of becoming an important player for their first team when the time is right.”
Esposito scored 16 goals for Inter’s under-17s this year and bagged three for the Primavera during the regular season.
Inter would not receive resistance from the player if they did choose to loan him to another club but Esposito’s first choice would be staying put.
Luciano Spalletti handed him his first-team debut in March as Inter lost 1-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16 of the Europa League.
