While Inter Milan have reportedly found a full agreement with Sassuolo over the transfer of Davide Frattesi, the club must first sell one or more players to raise funds.
The Nerazzurri have identified the 23-year-old as the ideal profile to bolster the middle of the park.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the two clubs have reached an agreement regarding the figures.
As the source explains, the Neroverdi value the Italian international at 35 million euros. The Beneamata will sign the player on loan for next season. The deal will include an obligation to buy on certain conditions.
The transfer will also include Samuele Mulattieri who played for Frosinone on loan last season. Inter will exercise their buy-back option for 500,000 euros, before adding the young striker to the transfer package.
However, the Sassuolo man still has several suitors who are still hoping to snatch his services at the eleventh hour. The list includes the likes of Roma, Juventus and even AC Milan.
Therefore, Inter must act swiftly to avoid a scenario similar to Gleison Bremer’s transfer saga from last season. The Brazilian was expected to join the Nerazzurri, but ended up signing for Juventus as the Beneamata couldn’t provide enough transfer funds to put the deal over the line.
So in the next few days, Inter will attempt to sell one or more players to raise the necessary cash to conclude the transfer of Frattesi.
The source adds that the box-to-box midfielder was one of Italy’s best performers in yesterday’s defeat to Spain in the semifinal of the Nations League.
