Inter are closely following the progress of Lecce’s promising young forward Pablo Rodriguez, according to a report in the Italian media today.

The 19-year-old joined the Serie B outfit from Real Madrid last summer and is enjoying an impressive first season in Italy under Eugenio Corini.

Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition said Inter had ‘already informed themselves’ on the forward, who is managed by Mauro Icardi’s former agent Abian Morano.

Sampdoria are also considering a move for Rodriguez, although the Spaniard’s preference would be to have one season in Serie A with Lecce (if they get promoted this season) before potentially leaving.

Rodriguez has scored five goals in 11 appearances for Corini’s side in Serie B during the 2020-21 campaign.

He has also provided two assists for the Salentini, who moved into the automatic promotion spots at the weekend after beating Frosinone.

Rodriguez played against Inter’s Primavera for Real Madrid in last season’s UEFA Youth League quarter-finals, which saw Los Blancos record a comfortable 3-0 win.
