Young Inter Milan striker Sebastiano Esposito will join Serie A club Hellas Verona on loan during the upcoming season.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 21-year-old is close to making the switch official.

Inter striker Esposito is not a player who has a place in the Nerazzurri’s first team.

The Nerazzurri are reportedly ready to make an attacking signing, with Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun currently the favourite. And then, even if Joaquin Correa were to depart, a replacement would most likely come in.

Therefore, another loan is on the cards for Esposito, who will aim to get playing time.

The Italy Under-21 international has had an impressive preseason, even scoring in a friendly win over Paris Saint-Germain. He will hope to build on this with Verona next season.

According to the Gazzetta, the move is not far away now.

The two clubs have agreed terms on the loan, as has the players. Therefore, he should sign his contract to join the Gialloblu soon.

Inter Striker Sebastiano Esposito Close To Hellas Verona Loan

Last season, Esposito went out on two separate loan spells.

Over the first half of the campaign, he played for Anderlecht in the Belgian top flight. Then, during the January transfer window, Esposito made the switch to Bari in Serie B, where he spent the remainder of the campaign on loan.

The season before then, Esposito had played for Basel on loan.

And prior to that, the Italian played in two different loan spells in Serie B, with SPAL and Venezia.

Esposito is hardly a player who has a likely role in Inter’s first team this season. Therefore, the Nerazzurri will look for a new team for the 21-year-old, whether it is on loan or in a permanent sale.

Reportedly, Inter even considered offering Esposito to Udinese as part of a player-plus-cash bid for midfielder Lazar Samardzic.

But it will in fact be Verona who bring the 21-year-old in for the season.
