Inter are still the team leading the race to sign Sassuolo and Italy midfielder Davide Frattesi this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri have yet to have an offer accepted, but that they are getting closer as they plan to meet with Sassuolo today.

Frattesi is still one of the hot names on the transfer market in Serie A this summer. However, as of yet, it is still far from clear where the Italian international will go.

Inter, for their part, are still very much keen. Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta has long planned to fund a deal for Frattesi with a sale for Marcelo Brozovic.

Brozovic is on the verge of joining Al-Nassr after a week of dramatic negotiations.

Inter Milan To Hold Further Davide Frattesi Talks With Sassuolo

Inter are hoping that by immediately reinvesting the fee for Brozovic, and including Samuele Mulattieri in their offer, they can shake hands with Sassuolo on a deal.

According to the Corriere, Inter have gotten as high as €25 million in their offer for Frattesi. However, this does not quite meet the Neroverdi’s full €35 million valuation even with the inclusion of Mulattieri.

According to the Corriere, Inter and Sassuolo will hold another meeting today.

This is because both Inter CEO Marotta and his Sassuolo counterpart Giovanni Carnevali will be at the Lega assembly opening ceremony.

Accordingly, the Corriere reports, the two executives will meet at some point during the day. They will see what the lay of the land is in talks for Frattesi.

As the days and weeks pass, the Frattesi transfer saga gets closer to a resolution.

According to the Corriere, the situation remains that Inter are ahead in the race. However, they can’t wait forever and must take their chance while it’s there.
