Young RB Leipzig forward Oliver Schmidhauser has confirmed that Inter Milan are keen to sign him.

Speaking to US0based news outlet InfoBae, the 18-year-old Swiss youth international made clear that, as SempreInter indicated, the Nerazzurri want to bring him in, and that he intends to leave Leipzig.

Last month, SempreInter exclusively reported that Schmidhauser is close to leaving Leipzig and joining Inter.

The teenager is seen as a high-level prospect, and the Nerazzurri have pursued him as a talent for the future. Schmidhauser, who is also eligible for the Dominican Republic international team, is currently playing at the Under-20 World Cup with the North Americans.

However, it was not initially confirmed that the 18-year-old will make the move. For the time being, Schmidhauser remains under contract with Leipzig, having joined the Bundesliga side from Greuther Furth.

Schmidhauser’s contract with Leipzig runs out at the end of next month, though. Therefore, the Swiss will be able to leave at the end of his deal and be free to join another club on a free transfer.

SempreInter anticipated that Inter would be that club.

“I have no intention of staying at Leipzig,” Schmidhauser made perfectly clear. “And yes, Inter are interested in signing me.”

he then went on to note that “I have other options as well. I’ll think about it over the coming days.”

“After the [Under-20] World Cup, I’ll make my decision.”

Schmidhauser then went on to speak about the prospect of playing up front with current Nerazzurri star Lautaro Martinez.

“He’s a great player,” the teenager said of Martinez. “But if I were to sign with Inter, I would play with the Under-19s.”

As for his decision to represent the Dominican Republic at the Under-20 World Cup, Schmidhauser explained that “I have the opportunity to play here with them, whereas Switzerland didn’t qualify.”

“There are a lot of good players there and it’s harder to play,” he noted of the Swiss national team.

“Maybe I’ll play for Switzerland one day, who knows,” Schmidhauser added.
