Empoli have made their request of either €15 million for Kristjan Asllani, or a fee of €12 million plus the loan of Martin Satriano.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri are ready to put forward €10 million plus the loan of Satriano when the clubs meet for talks today.

Inter are getting closer to a deal for Asllani, and the inclusion of Satriano in a deal could be the right incentive to convince Empoli to make a deal for the midfielder.

Presuming that Satriano accepts a loan move to join the Tuscans for next season, this could be the aspect that unlocks the deal and enables the Nerazzurri to meet Empoli’s €15 million valuation of the Albanian rather than making a straight cash offer.

However, there is still a bit of distance insofar as Empoli would still want a €12 million fee in addition to the loan of Satriano, whilst Inter would only be ready to offer €10 million.
