Inter are considering a summer move for Sassuolo striker and Nerazzurri supporter Giacomo Raspadori, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Raspadori gave Antonio Conte’s side a huge helping hand in the Serie A title race yesterday by scoring twice to secure a 2-1 victory for Sassuolo away at AC Milan.
Calciomercato.com said Inter were currently the club in Serie A most interested in signing Raspadori, whose €15 million price tag is increasing with each passing week.
The Nerazzurri face tough competition from abroad though, with RB Leipzig and Marseille both thought to have made ‘significant steps’ towards the 21-year-old.
Sassuolo are ready to demand a much higher fee than €15 million now because they have huge faith in Raspadori, as shown by the fact he captained Roberto De Zerbi’s side in their defeat against Inter two weeks ago.
The Neroverdi’s CEO Giovanni Carnevali is prepared to secure another high-profile transfer deal, with the report warning Inter that Sassuolo are very skilled in selling their players at high prices.
RB Leipzig specialise in developing young talents and have identified Raspadori as their next potential investment, while Marseille president Paolo Longoria is always alert to interesting players in Serie A and has made an enquiry.
Raspadori has scored four goals and provided two assists for Sassuolo this season.
