Inter Milan are still hellbent on signing Atalanta youngster Giorgio Scalvini despite facing several hurdles.
The 19-year-old started his career at Brescia before joining Le Dea’s ranks in 2015.
After rising through the club’s various age groups, the Italian has now cemented himself as a regular feature at Gian Piero Gaspernini’s court.
The teenager is also featuring with the senior national team. He has thus far earned eight caps with the Azzurri, but missed out on the last two Euro 2024 qualifiers due to an injury.
According to Calciomercato via FcInter1908, Inter directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio consider Scalvini the ideal profile for the future.
The Atalanta gem is young, Italian and has already collected significant experience in Serie A considering his age.
But as the source tells it, prising the defender away from Bergamo will be a daunting task for the Beneamata.
Atalanta will reportedly ask for a figure between 40 million and 50 million euros to part ways with the player.
Since the defender’s contract runs until 2027, the Orobici still have substantial leverage on the negotiations.

Moreover, Inter will be facing stern competition from other top European suitors. The source claims Manchester United are interested in the player’s services.
But despite facing an uphill battle, the report insists that Inter won’t give up easily.
The Nerazzurri will still play their chances and attempt to lure the Italy international toward Appiano Gentile.
This season, Scalvini made 14 appearances across all competitions, scoring a single goal in the Europa League.
