Inter Milan midfielder Davy Klaassen was the subject of an approach from a Turkish agent, but a January transfer isn’t a possibility.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews. The outlet reports that a summer departure for the 30-year-old to a Turkish club would be possible however.
Klaassen has been an Inter player since the summer transfer window.
The Dutchman had in fact joined the Nerazzurri on the final day of the window.
Inter decided to make their final signing of the window a midfielder to bolster their depth in central areas.
And Klaassen proved to be an opportunity. The former Everton and Werder Bremen midfielder was at Ajax, but the Dutch giants proved to be willing to let him leave on a free transfer.
Turkish Approach For Davy Klaassen – But January Departure From Inter Not A Possibility
According to FCIN, a prominent Turkish intermediary who represents a number of clubs in the Turkish Super League has made contact regarding a possible transfer for Klaassen.
The agent sounded out the feasibility of a transfer. As well as the player’s willingness to make the move after just six months at Inter.
But according to FCIN, there would be no possibility of this happening.
Firstly, there is the fact that Klaassen has little intention of leaving the Nerazzurri already.
And for their part, Inter are in no rush to see the Dutchman leave.
Particularly with Stefano Sensi potentially departing before the end of the transfer window, the Nerazzurri will not want to see the squad depth in midfield further reduced.
But more importantly, FIFA regulations would not allow for Klaassen to join a new club.
This is because the 30-year-old has already played for both Ajax and Inter this season.
Players may not play for three different clubs in a single campaign.
Therefore, whilst Klaassen could join a Turkish club next summer, particularly if Inter do not exercise the option to extend his contract, there would be no prospect for a move this month.
