Inter made an attempt to sign Francesco Caputo from Sassuolo in the recently closed transfer window according to a report from Italian news outlet FCInterNews.it.
At the beginning of the transfer window, Inter manager Antonio Conte put Caputo’s name forward to Inter management as a fourth choice striking option.
When Inter spoke with Sassuolo regarding the purchase of Stefano Sensi, Inter tested the ground with the Neroverdi club for Caputo.
Sassuolo were however quick to knock Inter’s advances back with them immediately deeming him non-transferable and demanding at least €15 million to let him go.
The 33-year-old, who recently made his debut for the Italian national team, has been with his current employers since the Summer of 2019. In his first season with the club he scored 21 goals in 37 appearances and has started this season well too with him scoring three goals and tallying two assists in Sassuolo’s first three games of the season.
