Midfielder Stefano Sensi is hoping to convince Inter Milan to extend his contract with his performances over the coming season.

This according to Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, via FCInterNews.

Now it looks certain – Sensi will stay at Inter this season.

The 28-year-old had looked like he had one foot out the exit door for much of the summer transfer window.

Whilst there is no doubt of Sensi’s ability when fit, the “when fit” qualifier has caused him no shortage of problems at the Nerazzurri.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi has seemed not to trust the former Sassuolo midfielder’s availability. This is the result of a string of various physical problems that have affected him since he’s joined the Nerazzurri.

But circumstances have caused the club to keep him on.

Stefano Sensi To Stay At Inter Milan – Wants To Win Back The Club

The dramatic collapse of Inter’s move for Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic means that the Nerazzurri have missed out on the player who appeared to be their priority target as the “sixth” midfielder in the depth chart.

Therefore, the club have been left with two options. These have been to scramble for another signing in the final days of the window, or keep Sensi around.

And according to La Repubblica, Inter have made their decision.

The Nerazzurri will rely on Sensi.

The hope is that the 28-year-old Italian international can be more durable than in the past.

Moreover, it is not as though Sensi will be a player with the responsibility of starting match in and match out.

If the Italian can contribute to ease the burden on other midfielders like Nicolo Barella, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Davide Frattesi, he’ll have done his job.

But Sensi is hoping that he can do more than that.

The 28-year-old still believes that he can play a prominent role for Inter. He wants to fight for his place and give coach Inzaghi a decision to make in midfield all season long.

And with Sensi’s current contract expiring at the end of next June, he hopes that he can convince the Nerazzurri to offer him a new deal.
