Inter are now one of a number of elite European clubs that are chasing the signature of a talented youngster from the academy at Chievo Verona, according to a report in the Italian media.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Samuele Vignato is suddenly being pursued by some of the best clubs in the world who want to make the 17-year-old a part of their youth setup.

It is believed that the difficulties facing Chievo Verona right now means that teams feel this is a great opportunity to snatch a quality young player. Chievo Verona have been kicked out of Serie B due to financial difficulties, subject to their appeal.

Now a race is on between Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Inter, AC Milan, Juventus, and Napoli for the signature of the talented attacking midfielder.

There is still a real chance though that he may choose to play for Bologna as his older brother, Emanuel, plays there.
