Inter new boy Kristjan Asllani has said that it feels amazing to sign for the Nerazzurri and he has a clear admiration for Marcelo Brozovic.

The Albanian midfielder gave his first interview to Inter TV after he had his move to Inter officially announced on Thursday afternoon.

He joins the club on a one-year loan deal which becomes permanent next season when Inter pay an additional fee.

When asked how he is feeling upon joining Inter, Kristjan Asllani said: “It feels amazing. I’m only 20 years old and getting the chance to represent this club is really special. I can’t wait for the season to get underway and I’ll try to give my all.”

The 20-year-old was asked who his footballing idols were when he was growing up and whilst he did not have a definitive answer, he singled out Inter’s Marcelo Brozovic as someone he admires a lot.

“I wouldn’t say I had a particular idol, but it’s true that I always had a ball with me. I watch as many games as I can because I try to follow and draw inspiration from a variety of midfielders. I enjoy doing that. Now I’ve got the chance to play alongside Marcelo Brozovic, who’s an incredible midfielder.”

The youngster also made sure to thank Empoli for how they have developed him and he refused to put too much thought into his personal objectives at Inter just yet.

“I don’t have any specific objectives right now. I take things step by step, but I’m really happy to have made my debut at a young age. I’d like to thank Empoli; I owe the club a lot but now I’m at Inter I’d like to give my all here.”

His first Serie A goal came against Inter at the San Siro towards the end of last season: “I got my first goal at San Siro and I was delighted with that but I’m maybe even happier now.”

He was asked about his backstory which saw him move to Italy at a very young age: “I never could’ve imagined it. I left Albania when I was two years old and came to Italy. I did all of my schooling in Italy as well as learning my football here. I could never have imagined this happening.”

Finally, he was asked to give a message to the Inter fans: “I’m raring to go. I’d just like the fans to give us as much support as they can.”
