Sassuolo Chairman Giovanni Carnevali has made clear that Inter targets Giacomo Raspadori and Gianluca Scamacca are not going anywhere in the January transfer window.
Speaking to the press, as reported by FCInterNews, Carnevali denied rumours that the pair could be on their way in January and emphasized the Neroverdi’s intention to keep both until the end of the season.
Both Raspaori and Scamacca are long-term Inter targets, with Raspadori in particular having been linked to the Nerazzurri throughout the summer transfer window.
In the end neither player left Sassuolo in the summer, and Inter signed other targets in attacking areas, but with Alexis Sanchez linked with a departure from Inter in January the club are reportedly ready to renew their interest in the Neroverdi duo.
However, Carnevali’s words suggest that the pursuit of the two young strikers would once again fail for Inter in January as it did in the summer, with the Neroverdi not ready to sell them.
“We weren’t open to selling them in the last transfer market session and we won’t do it in January,” Carnevali stated. “Raspadori is an important player for us. Inter are interested, but our will, especially for young players like Raspadori and Scamacca, is to keep them with us.”
He made clear, “In January there is no possibility, neither for Inter nor for the other clubs. June is far away. It is clear that we are a club that must also take into account the economic impacts.”
Carnevali also gave his thoughts on Nerazzurri midfielder Stefano Sensi, who joined the club from Sassuolo in the summer of 2019.
“Sensi I know well and I think he is a player of great quality,” he stated. “Going to Inter, the jump is always significant, I’m sorry that he’s has had all these injuries. If he recovers physically, as I hope he does, he is a player who has extraordinary qualities.”
