Inter Primavera Forward Martin Satriano: “Flattered By Arsenal & Chelsea Interest But Totally Focused On Nerazzurri”
Inter’s academy star Martin Satriano admits he is flattered by interest from Premier League clubs but insists he is focused on delivering for the Nerazzurri.
Satriano has impressed for Armando Madonna’s Primavera side this season, scoring in last week’s derby victory over AC Milan in the Campionato Primavera 1.
Chelsea and Arsenal are said to be interested in a move for the 20-year-old striker, who has discussed the interest in an interview with the Daily Mail.
“It is always flattering, yes, it is a sign that I am doing things well and that I have to continue down that path,” Satriano began.
“I try to use it as an incentive to keep working and be better every day.
“The Premier League is the number one league in the world in terms of competition, that I think all the players want to play, I think all the teams are very good.
“It is a very competitive league where any team can beat anyone but for now I am totally focused on Inter and to do the best with them.”
Satriano then reflected on his move to Inter from Nacional which took place last January.
“My move to Inter was a very nice moment that I will never forget,” he recalled.
“It was like from one day to the next, although I spoke with my representative throughout January about emigrating to Europe, in the last days everything was decided.
“On January 29 at noon, my representative Nick called me, telling me he had to fly to Milan for me to join Inter and I couldn’t believe it.
“I remember he was very happy for me and within three hours he was already flying to Italy to do the transfer.
“It was all very fast.”
Satriano has yet to represent Inter at first-team level but has made the bench before and has also trained with the first team, alongside the deadly strike force of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
“The truth is that training with the first team is something that I really enjoy,” he added.
“Training with top-level players every day is something very nice, which helps me a lot to improve my game, since I train at a very high intensity and with great players.
“Sharing the pitch with players like Lautaro and Romelu is something very good as today they are the best forwards in Serie A and among the best in the world.
“I always try to look at them, listen to them and try to do all the good things they do on the pitch.”
This season for Armando Madonna’s Primavera, Satriano has scored six goals and provided a single assist in 10 appearances across all competitions.
