Roma owned Alessandro Florenzi has revealed that he rejected an offer from Inter prior to signing his most recent contract extension with the Giallorossi.

Inter went in for the Italian national team player back in the Summer of 2018 but missed out on the now 29-year-old, who opted to put pen to paper on a new five year deal with the Italian capital city club instead.

“I refused Inter when I renewed with Roma, there was an important offer from the Nerazzurri, but I followed my heart and I decided to stay with Roma,” he remarked in a Facebook Live chat with Italian entrepreneur Marco Montemagno.

Florenzi also drew links with Inter ahead of the most recent January transfer window but ended up joining La Liga outfit Valencia on loan for the remainder of this campaign.

Florenzi is a product of Roma’s academy and has made some 280 appearances across all competitions for them, with his first appearance for them coming back in 2011.

This season he has made a total of 23 appearances between the first half of the season with Roma and second half of the season with Valencia. In just under 1500 minutes, he has provided a single assist for his teammates.
