The positive relationship between Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali could facilitate the Nerazzurri’s pursuit of Neroverdi duo Gianluca Scamacca and Davide Frattesi.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the friendship between the two executives looks to be a major factor in favour of the Nerazzurri as they attempt to sign the pair.
Inter have identified Scamacca and Frattesi as major targets to reinforce their attack and midfield respectively ahead of next season, with the club aiming to build around young Italian talent.
The players would not come cheap based on their form this campaign, with the Neroverdi asking €40 million for Scamacca and €25 million for Frattesi at present.
However, the Nerazzurri will look to find ways to lower these amounts, possibly with the inclusion of players going the other way as part of a cash-plus-player offer to get the deals done, and the friendship between Marotta and Carnevali could make the negotiations easier.
