Inter could move for Sassuolo striker Giacomo Raspadori, but will wait until next summer to do so unless Lautaro Martinez departs this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are in continued talks with the Neroverdi over the player.

The relationship between Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali is good, and it is thought that the Nerazzurri are in a good position to sign the 21-year-old.

However, for the moment it would not be possible for the Nerazzurri to meet the Neroverdi’s valuation for the player, given their balance sheet and the objective to restrain spending at the club this summer.

As such, Inter are hoping to move for the player next summer rather than this, with the understanding that Sassuolo will be ready for their interest and will cooperate in negotiations.

Should Lautaro Martinez leave in the summer, however, the story will be different, and Raspadori could be brought in as the Argentine’s replacement.
