Inter CEO Beppe Marotta wants to get an agreement in place in January to sign Sassuolo striker Giacomo Raspadori next summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the 21-year-old striker is a major target for the Nerazzurri and for Marotta in particular, and that the CEO wants to waste no time in moving for him.
Raspadori has reportedly been on Inter’s radar for some time, with the club having reportedly been in contact with both the Neroverdi and with his agent Tulio Tinti about a potential move since early in this summer.
A move for Raspadori did not materialize during the summer transfer window, but the Nerazzurri are still strongly interested in bringing the 21-year-old in.
To this end, Marotta could look to exploit his positive relations with both his current club and agent, as well as the player’s desire to join Inter, to get an agreement wrapped up in January which would see him play out the rest of the season in Emilia-Romagna before making the switch to Inter next summer where he could take the place of Alexis Sanchez.
