Brighton are reportedly eager to sign young Inter Milan midfielder Kristjan Asllani. But only a lucrative bid would prise him away from Appiano Gentile.

The 21-year-old joined the Nerazzurri last summer after making his breakthrough at Empoli. He rose through the Azzurri’s ranks to become a regular feature in the 2021/22 campaign.

However, the Albanian struggled for consistency and playing time during his first season at the Giuseppe Meazza.

Nevertheless, he remains an interesting profile who has suitors in Italy and abroad. According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Brighton are keeping tabs on the young midfielder.

As the source explains, Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has been tracking Asllani’s development since his days as Sassuolo coach.

The report claims that the Italian manager had already made contact with Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio back in June concerning the Albanian starlet.

Brighton Must Come Forward With A Large Offer To Convince Inter Milan Of Selling Kristjan Asllani

The Seagulls are now running a survey to understand if a transfer would be possible. However, the source believes that only a substantial offer could tempt Inter to part ways with the former Empoli man.

So if Brighton truly want to sign Asllani, they must splash a considerable amount of cash.

The source adds that despite the imminent arrival of Lazar Samardzic, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi is still planning to count on Asllani.

The latter would serve as an understudy to Hakan Calhanoglu in the deep-lying playmaker role.

Following Marcelo Brozovic’s sale, the Nerazzurri are no longer spoiled for options in this particular position.
