Inter are serious in their efforts to sign midfielder Ederson from Salernitana, and have already made an offer although they would face competition.

This according to the Campanian club’s Managing Sporting Director Maurizio Milan, who explained in an interview with Naples-based newspaper Il Mattino that the Nerazzurri and other clubs are interested, although the 22-year-old won’t come cheap.

Despite having only spent half a season in Serie A, Ederson has already marked himself as a significant talent and prompted serious transfer interest.

According to Il Mattino, the Nerazzurri have already offered €21 million for the Brazilian, whilst striker Andrea Pinamonti could be included in a deal.

The newspaper further reports that a major offer is expected from at least big club abroad, likely to be Barcelona, in the coming days, whilst Atalanta are also keen on the midfielder.

Salernitana’s Managing Sporting Director Maurizio Milan updated on the situation, stating that “There is interest from the Nerazzurri and there is a tangible offer from Atalanta.”

“We’re in talks with Inter,” he added. “The player’s will will be decisive. Our valuation will be no less than €20 million, and there could also be a big offer from a club abroad next week.”
