Sassuolo are the Serie A team that Kristjan Asllani were referring to when he said that there was a real possibility of him leaving Inter Milan during the summer transfer window.

This according to Italian news outlet

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN recently, 21-year-old Albanian international Asllani acknowledged that there had been a possibility of his leaving during the summer.

Asllani only arrived at Inter last summer. He joined from Empoli.

However, playing time has not been easy for the young midfielder to come by.

Therefore, there have been one or two suggestions that he could be on his way – either on loan, or on a permanent basis – in search of more opportunities to play.

And Asllani acknowledged that there was a chance in the summer.

However, the 21-year-old also made perfectly clear that he decided to stay.

Asllani wants to stay and fight for his chances. Meanwhile, he feels that the Nerazzurri have put their faith in him.

Sassuolo The Serie A Team Who Tried To Sign Kristjan Asllani

According to CM, the team that went after Asllani during the summer were Asllani.

The Neroverdi are certainly a team with a reputation for giving young players a chance to play.

Therefore, for a player in Asllani’s position, a move to the Mapei Stadium could’ve been ideal.

And according to CM, the Neroverdi very much believed in the idea of bringing Asllani in.

There is also the fact that Sassuolo and Inter had already done business during the summer transfer window.

Midfielder Davide Frattesi had joined the Nerazzurri from Sassuolo. And striker Samuele Mulattieri went the other way.

Therefore, when Inter showed an interest in signing midfielder Maxime Lopez, the Emilian club sensed the opportunity to sign Asllani as a direct like-for-like replacement in a swap deal.

But Asllani made it clear – he wanted to stay at Inter.

Therefore, that swap deal never happened.

Inter also considered a move for Tanguy Ndombele, before eventually settling on Davy Klaassen.

Lopez made the switch to Fiorentina instead.

And for Asllani, it was a stay at Inter, where he continues to look to grow and fight for his place.
