Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni has made clear that he does not plan to leave the club during the summer transfer window.

This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, who reports that the 23-year-old has communicated to the club that he has every intention of staying for next season.

Bastoni has been linked with a move away from Inter during the window, with teams in the Premier League looking to be particularly keen on his signature.

The Nerazzurri could week consider a sale of the 23-year-old given the need to bring in a significant cash influx from the transfer market to meet their financial target of a large net profit during the summer.

However, for his part the defender does not want to leave for any other club during the window, and his will could prove to be the decisive factor as the Nerazzurri plan for the future and formulate their transfer strategy.
