Inter linked Marco Silvestri discussed his strong performances so far this season for Hellas Verona in an interview in today’s print edition of the Italian magazine Sport Week.

“Without a doubt I was able to prove, even to myself, that I can play in the Serie A. But this is not an end point, just the beginning.

“And the fact that I haven’t been called to the national team after the call up in October pushes me to give even more.”

The 29-year-old Italian goalkeeper, who is contracted to the Gialloblu until 2022, has attracted the attention of the Milanese club this season due to his strong performances in between the posts for the Verona based club.

Inter are currently looking for a long term replacement for club captain Samir Handanovic, with Silvestri being one of many potential options for the Nerazzurri.

So far this season, Silvestri has made seven appearances across all competitions, for a total of 630 minutes.

In that time, he has conceded five goals and helped the Gialloblu keep three clean sheets.

The 29-year-old has not earnt a cap for Italy yet, but will be fighting for join coach Roberto Mancini’s Azzurri squad for next summer’s European Championship. He made one appearance for the Under 21 squad.
