Giacomo Raspadori has revealed that despite having an obsession with Inter when he was a youngster, he rejected the chance to move to the Nerazzurri club when he was a teenager.

The Sassuolo starlet scored his first Serie A goal in the Neroverdi’s recent 2-1 win over title chasers Lazio in what was his seventh first team appearance across all competitions to date this term.

“At 10-years-old I was obsessed with Inter, Samuel Eto’o was my idol. After they won the treble, I chose Sassuolo because I followed my brother Enrico, who is three years older,” he began an interview with Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, which appeared in yesterday’s print edition of the Milan based news outlet.

He then spoke on the offers that he rejected prior to committing himself to his current employers: “At 14 I had offers from Inter, Milan and Rome but after a dinner with my parents I chose to stay at Sassuolo.”

Raspadori has come through the ranks at Sassuolo and has a contract with them through to the end of the 2021/22 season. Raspadori is also part of the Italian under 20 national team, who he has scored one goal for in four outings to date.
