Inter are looking to bring down the average age of their squad and inject fresh potential next season, with young players such as Tommaso Baldanzi amongst their targets.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Nerazzurri CEOs Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio are being tasked with cutting costs whilst also maintaining a competitive squad, and so will look for high potential young starlets to add to the team.

High on their list of targets is Empoli’s playmaking midfielder Baldanzi, with the 19-year-old catching the eye with two goals from six Serie A appearances this season.

Inter could fight off competition for him by offering Empoli striker Martin Satriano in exchange to get a discount, but this will be considered later in the campaign.

Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri could also explore the possibility of bringing Salvatore Esposito back to the club, after he departed for SPAL in 2018.

The 22-year-old has impressed under coach Daniele De Rossi, and Inter are considering bringing him in to reunite him with brothers Sebastiano and Francesco Pio.
