Inter are rubbing their hands with glee over the progress of their academy forward Martin Satriano, according to an Italian media report today.
As per Tuttosport’s print edition, Satriano’s double in the Primavera’s 3-0 win over AC Milan on Wednesday could act as a springboard and help him fulfil the potential which convinced the Nerazzurri to sign him last year.
Inter brought Satriano to the club from Uruguayan side Nacional, where he starred at youth level, beating several other Serie A clubs to his signature by paying €2.4 million.
Satriano will hope to mark his 20th birthday tomorrow by scoring in another key match for Inter, when Armando Madonna’s side face Juventus in the Campionato Primavera.
Antonio Conte named Satriano in his match-day squad for Inter’s first senior derby of the season back in October, before including him again for matches against Genoa and Parma.
The talented striker is unlikely to make the bench again for Sunday’s crucial game against AC Milan, but the Turin-based paper assured he was impressing everyone with his performances for the Primavera.
Satriano has made nine appearances in all competitions this season, scoring six goals and providing one assist.
