Young Inter Milan goalkeeper Filip Stankovic is edging closes towards Sampdoria. However, the formula of his transfer has been a topic of debate between the two clubs.

The 21-year-old joined Inter’s ranks at a tender age. He’s the son of Nerazzurri treble hero Dejan Stankovic.

The young custodian rose through the club’s ranks before joining Dutch side FC Volendam on loan in 2021.

After two years in the Netherlands, he returned to the base and acted as the main option between the sticks during Inter’s pre-season tour in Japan.

But while some believed he could remain at Appiano Gentile for the next campaign, the arrival of Yann Sommer coupled with the expected signing of Emil Audero will push him out of the club.

So according to FcInterNews, Stankovic will join Sampdoria in a separate deal from Audero who’s moving in the opposite direction.

But while the Nerazzurri were hoping to send the young Serbian to the Luigi Ferraris on a dry loan, the Blucerchiati insist on adding an option to buy the player at the end of the season.

Therefore, Inter will succumb to the request. However, they will maintain a buy-back option for the future.

This will be an interesting experience for Filip Stankovic who will follow in the footsteps of his father who also represented Sampdoria during his playing days.

Interestingly, the Serbian legend was recently serving as the club’s head coach before leaving his post at the end of last season.

Andrea Pirlo is now at the helm. He’ll be looking to bring the Ligurians back to Serie A at the first time of asking.
