Serie B club Lecco are on the verge of signing young Inter Milan owned striker Eddie Salcedo on loan with an option to buy.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews.
Young striker Salcedo is currently on loan with Eldense in the Spanish Segunda Division.
But it looks as though the Italian’s future may not be in Spain.
The Italian youth team international has made twelve appearances for Eldense, and scored just two goals so far.
Salcedo has been the subject of interest from a few different teams in Serie B, reports suggest.
But it is Lecco who will win the race to bring the Inter-owned striker to the Italian second division.
Lecco Close In On Signing Inter Owner Eddie Salcedo On Loan
According to FCIN, the negotiations are basically complete.
Salcedo is ready to complete a move to Lecco for the rest of the season.
The transfer will be an initial loan until the end of June. But then, Lecco will have the option to sign Salcedo permanently.
During the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, the young Italian striker was on loan at Hellas Verona. Playing for the Gialloblu, Salcedo developed a fair bit under coach Ivan Juric.
Then, in the summer of 2021, he made the switch to join Spezia on loan.
During the following season in Liguria, Salcedo found playing time difficult to come by. The fact that Spezia were fighting off relegation and largely relied on experienced and proven players certainly didn’t help his cause.
Last summer, Salcedo joined Bari on loan in Serie B.
There, he spent the first half of the season.
However, in the January transfer window, Salcedo made the switch to his former club Genoa.
It had been the Grifone who had sold Salcedo to Inter in the first place.
The young striker helped the Ligurians achieve promotion to Serie A, bouncing straight back after a season in the second division.
