Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi has admitted that one or two players will be sold this summer amid strong interest from Inter in Kristjan Asllani, according to a report in the Italian print media.

Speaking during an interview with La Nazione, Fabrizio Corsi refused to name any names but it is assumed that the players that will be leaving are the more prominent ones in the squad which are attracting a lot of attention from wealthy clubs.

“One or two elements will certainly be disposed of, there will be as many first-team additions from the youth team, and then we also need to understand how the market will develop. It’s no mystery that there are some coveted players in the squad.”

He then explained that with the money from those sales they can build a competitive team that is not so heavily reliant on the loan market, from which they had 10 players last season.

“With the proceeds we can reinvest to build a competitive team. Last season ended with ten loans, I hope for something different. The discourse related to the stadium is being evaluated. These are important figures, they are frightening at the moment, it is a real estate investment, it is not exactly our business.”

Inter are very serious about signing Kristjan Asllani as they believe that he can be the perfect backup for Marcelo Brozovic next season and can eventually replace the Croatian when he moves on in a few seasons’ time.
