Inter Milan Still Lead The Way For Davide Frattesi Despite Juventus Interest
The Nerazzurri have been working to try and sign Frattesi over the past couple of weeks.
Reportedly, the Neroverdi starlet is Inter’s priority target to strengthen in midfield.
With Marcelo Brozovic looking close to the exit door amid Al-Nassr interest, Inter will need to sign a midfielder. Frattesi has been on their radar since last season, but now looks to be the time when they will make their move.
Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri are reportedly also among the teams interested in signing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Frattesi and Milinkovic-Savic could be among the players involved in a game of musical chairs between some of Serie A’s top midfielders this summer.
Other midfielders who could be on the move include Brozovic, Inter superstar Nicolo Barella, Juventus man Adrien Rabiot, and AC Milan’s Sandro Tonali.
