Inter Milan will trigger the buyback option to bring striker Samuele Mulattieri back from Frosinone today.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri plan on making the 22-year-old part of negotiations to sign midfielder Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo in the coming weeks.
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 had the option to sign the 22-year-old on a permanent basis. They did so by paying Inter a fee of €4.5 million.
However, as expected, Inter will look to bring Mulattieri back immediately.
Inter Milan To Bring Back Samuele Mulattieri From Frosinone – Expected To Be Part Of Frattesi Deal
Inter’s plan for Mulattieri is certainly not to keep the striker around for long, however.
The Nerazzurri intend on offering the 22-year-old to Sassuolo as part of a deal for midfielder Davide Frattesi.
Frattesi is a major target for Inter. The Nerazzurri have already held extensive talks with the Neroverdi towards the aim of signing the 23-year-old.
Sassuolo’s interest in young striker Mulattieri emerged from the negotiations. Accordingly, Inter are ready to send Mulattieri to the Mapei Stadium as part of a deal to sign Frattesi.
The Nerazzurri’s intention is to hurry up and conclude the deal for Frattesi in a timely manner so they don’t risk another situation like that of defender, who joined Juventus from Torino last summer after Inter dallied in signing him.
Sassuolo are ready to send Frattesi to Inter for around €35 million in addition to Mulattieri coming the other way.
Accordingly, Inter will bring Mulattieri back from Frosinone today by exercising their buyback option.
