Simone Inzaghi wants to keep Stefano Sensi and kick-start his Inter career, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Gazzetta dello Sport said Sensi was confident he would get the chance to have a third season with the Nerazzurri, despite persistent injury problems.
Inzaghi ‘has every intention’ of reviving the 25-year-old’s fortunes at San Siro because Sensi would be a great option in his 3-5-2 system.
Inter will listen to offers for Sensi this summer, but Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio would not accept anything below €20 million.
Sensi was linked last month with interest from Shakhtar Donetsk and Fiorentina, the Milan-based publication noted, both of whom would guarantee him regular game time.
However, both clubs would represent a backwards step from Inter, who know they have a precious player on their hands if he can regain fitness consistently.
Sensi would need luck and help from Inzaghi to turn his fortunes around with the Nerazzurri, the report argued, but the potential is there to resurrect the excellent player Inter had at the start of the 2019-20 season.
Inter paid €25 million to sign Sensi from Sassuolo in 2019, between a €5 million loan and another €20 million fee the next summer, which is why they won’t listen to bids below €20 million.
