The brother of Sassuolo striker Giacomo Raspadori has made it clear that he knows how much his brother is worth as transfer rumours began to gather pace, according to a report in the Italian media this evening.
Speaking during an interview with La Repubblica, Enrico Raspadori spoke about the emotions he felt watching his brother play for Italy against Lithuania on Wednesday night.
“When he was playing in the Under 21 team and I heard Mameli’s hymn, the emotion was enormous. It was the same the other night, but when Giacomo scored, it was even greater.”
Giacomo Raspadori scored his first ever senior Azzurri goal in that game, and fittingly, the match as played at Sassuolo’s home ground meaning he was even more heavily supported than everyone else.
He began to be linked consistently with Inter as a potential replacement for Lautaro Martinez but in the end, the Argentine did not leave the club. Inter may still return next summer for him though.
Discussing the rumours of a move for his brother, Enrico Raspadori explained that he does not read the news but he knows what his brother is worth.
“Ah, the newspapers, I never read them. But rumours go around, football is like this. We’ll see, I know my brother’s worth.”
