Inter Milan will exercise their buyback clause for striker Samuele Mulattieri, as Frosinone are ready to trigger a purchase option for the 22-year-old.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri are prepared to bring Mulattieri back and sell him during the summer, as he is a target for the likes of Atalanta, Sassuolo, and Hellas Verona.
Young striker Mulattieri has spent the season just gone on loan with Lazio-based club Frosinone in Serie B.
The 22-year-old scored twelve times for the Giallazzurri, helping them to reach promotion to the top flight as second division champions.
As part of the loan deal for Mulattieri, Frosinone have the option to sign the 22-year-old on a permanent basis. They can do so for a fee of €4.5 million.
According to FCIN, there is no question of Frosinone’s desire to trigger the option and sign Mulattieri permanently.
Inter Milan To Exercuse Buyback Clause For Striker Samuele Mulattieri From Frosinone
However, FCIN reports, Mulattieri won’t stay a Frosinone player long.
This is because Inter have a buyback option as part of the 22-year-old’s loan deal.
Given the quality that Mulattieri has shown playing for Frosinone, and the player’s value, there is little question that Inter will bring him back from Frosinone. They can do so for €5.5 million, €1 million more than Frosinone will play for him.
However, Inter will not keep Mulattieri as part of the first-team picture.
Rather, the Nerazzurri are ready to cash in and sell the striker on a permanent basis. They expect to fetch a much higher fee than €4.5 million given the striker’s form over the season just gone.
Several clubs from within Serie A are keen on signing Mulattieri.
Atalanta and Verona are among them.
Moreover, Sassuolo are also very keen on the 22-year-old. A recent report suggests that the Nerazzurri could even use Mulattieri as a makeweight to sign Neroverdi midfielder Davide Frattesi.
