Inter are keeping a close eye on the development of Lecce’s promising striker Pablo Rodriguez, according to an Italian media report today.
As per FCInterNews.it, the Nerazzurri are impressed by the Spaniard’s performances in Serie B, along with Sampdoria and a host of clubs in Serie A and La Liga.
Rodriguez, who came through Real Madrid’s academy before joining Eugenio Corini’s side, has drawn attention by scoring four goals and providing two assists in just 288 minutes for Lecce this season.
Inter have alerted their scouts to keep tabs on the 19-year-old but have yet to make any contact regarding a potential move.
Rodriguez is managed by Abian Morano, the same agent who brought Inter’s former captain Mauro Icardi to Italy in 2012, which may or may not be an advantage for the Nerazzurri if and when they choose to pursue a deal.
FCIN’s report denied claims that Real Madrid had an option to re-sign the forward, who swapped La Liga for Italy’s second tier last summer.
Rodriguez has two objectives between now and the end of this season, or rather helping Lecce secure an immediate return to Serie A and putting himself in the shop window for this summer’s transfer window.
