Young Inter striker Martin Satriano looks set for a role in the Nerazzurri’s senior first-team squad next season, with the club not able to put their trust in the availability of Alexis Sanchez due to his fitness record.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Uruguayan will be called upon as part of the attacking rotation along with Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko, and one further signing.
Inter are preparing for life without Romelu Lukaku following the Belgian’s sale to Chelsea, and their priority is making sure there are quality options to coach Simone Inzaghi under all circumstances.
Andrea Pinamonti is set for a loan move to Empoli, while Eddie Salcedo and Facundo Colidio are also likely to depart, while Satriano will remain with the club feeling that he can contribute when called upon.
Sanchez is currently dealing with an injury issue, something which has plagued him since his arrival at the Giuseppe Meazza, and is not considered reliable enough to be the fourth striker in Inzaghi’s plans for a full season.
Accordingly, Satriano, who has followed up his impressive campaign with the Primavera team last season with eye-catching pre-season displays, will be given an opportunity in the first team.
