Inter have reached an agreement with Italian teenager Lorenzo Pirola to extend his contract to 2025, according to a report from Italian media outlet FcInterNews earlier today.
The report details how the Nerazzurri are keen to keep the 18-year-old Italian defender, who was voted the best defender of the European U-17 Championship and included in the top 11 of the U-17 World squad. This attracted the attention of top European clubs like Liverpool and Manchester City, especially considering that his current contract expires in 2021.
Juventus made an offer for the player, the report continues, offering the 18-year-old a five-year contract worth €1 million gross per season. The player instead wanted to continue his time with Inter and work with first team coach Antonio Conte and his contract renewal will be made official after the end of the lockdown period.
Pirola has made 20 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1800 minutes. In that time, he has provided one assist and helped the team keep nine clean sheets.
