Inter are convinced that they can pull off signing Brescia starlet Sandro Tonali according to a report from Italian transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio aired moments ago on broadcaster Sky Sport Italia.

“The Nerazzurri are the club that is most convinced that they can conclude the negotiations for Tonali. Juventus are also pressing hard to sign the player but are currently working on other swap deals and will from there decide which midfielders to complete Sarri’s midfield” Di Marzio reported.

“Barcelona was interested in him in the past few months but is now working on swap deals over cash investments.”

Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta believes that the recently turned 20-year-old is the ideal addition to reinforce the midfield department as he is young, Italian and can be snapped up for a good price of around €30 million.

Barcelona have also shown an interest in signing the Italian national team midfielder but are now more focused on carrying out swap deals.

Juventus have also been heavily linked with making a move for Tonali, who is widely regarded as one of the best Italian prospects out there at the moment, but they are busy doing swap deals and after them they will understand what they need to complete their midfield.

This season Tonali has made 24 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored one goal and tallied five assists.
