Inter are targeting Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi for next summer, but they will face competition for his signature from Juventus.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri have made the 22-year-old one of their main midfielder targets.
The Nerazzurri have been tracking Frattesi during his time in Serie A with Sassuolo, where his performances have begun to earn him a strong reputation in Italian football.
Inter scouts have watched the midfielder play in four games for the Neroverdi, and only one of his games, against Spezia, did not confirm the club’s interest.
Frattesi is now one of the Nerazzurri’s main targets to take the place of Arturo Vidal in the squad with the Chilean’s contract set to expire at the end of June 2022.
However, the midfielder’s valuation could be a problem, with the Neroverdi currently valuing him at around €15-18 million but potentially ready to slap a €25 million price tag on him on the basis of the strength of his performances this season.
Moreover, Juventus are also tracking the 22-year-old, and Inter will likely have to go head-to-head with the Bianconeri to try and sign him next summer.
