Inter’s loan forward Rigoberto Rivas is attracting attention from several clubs in Serie A, his agent revealed today.

Rivas has enjoyed an excellent season on loan at Reggina, scoring five goals in 27 appearances for Marco Baroni’s side in Serie B.

Reggina have an option to make the 22-year-old’s loan move permanent, while Inter have a counter-option to re-sign the Honduras international.

However, Rivas has a chance of playing in the top flight next season after his agent Filippo Pacini told FcInter1908.it: “I won’t deny there have been approaches from mid-table clubs in Serie A, as well as leagues abroad.

“We have interest for Rivas and we’ll speak to Inter when they call us to discuss the situation.”

Reggina are thought to be keen on signing Rivas permanently, but Pacini admitted everything was still up in the air regarding his client’s future.

“Everything is in standby at the moment, Serie B only finished on Monday so we’re waiting out of respect for Reggina,” he explained.

“What’s more, Rivas will be playing in the CONCACAF Nations League for Honduras next month and then he’ll be going to the Tokyo Olympics with the under-23s.

“Those are big events for him and a nice opportunity to put himself in the shop window, let’s see what developments there might be.”

Inter signed a contract extension with Rivas through to 2023 last summer, allowing the Nerazzurri a chance to send him on loan again for this season.

“We extended his deal by one year because we had to if we were going to move on loan,” Pacini admitted.

“If Reggina don’t sign him permanently then it will be up to Inter to decide his future along with us.”

Rivas has continued his development with Reggina and Pacini is convinced he is ready to make the next step and move to Serie A.

“I’ve spoken to those who have coached him and he has great skills,” he added.

“Rivas has great stamina, an incredible physical strength and good technique.

“He needed time to develop but he’s already proved with Honduras that he can cope very well playing at a high level.

“He’s good enough for Serie A, mentally and physically, but he’s calm at the moment; we’ll see what happens.”
