Inter Milan are reportedly ahead of their domestic rivals in the race to sign Lucas Bergvall. However, they still risk losing to foreign competitors.
The 17-year-old has emerged as one of the most exciting teenagers in European football.
He started his career at Brommapojkarna before moving to Djurgarden almost a year ago. He now plies his trade at one of Sweden’s biggest clubs, carving himself a place in the senior squad.
The teenager has even earned his debut with the senior Swedish national team earlier this month.
While a host of clubs from Italy and Europe are now on the player’s trail, Inter will reportedly have their say in the race.
According to FcInterNews, the Nerazzurri would be the favorites to sign Bergvall if he decides to join a Serie A club.
The Beneamata are well ahead of AC Milan, AS Roma, Juventus and Napoli in the race for the midfielder’s signature.
As the source explains, Inter directors Piero Ausilio and Dario Baccin are keen admirers of the youngster who possesses an impressive stature and considerable technical traits.
Inter Milan Leading The Serie A Race For Lucas Bergvall But Still Have To Overcome European Competition
However, the Serie A giants still run the risk of missing out on the player’s services to another European side.
Bergvall has many suitors in the Bundesliga, but the report claims that the notion of playing in Germany hasn’t truly enticed him.
On the other hand, Barcelona remain a major threat for Inter, as they can offer the Sweden international the chance to sharpen his tools at their famous La Masia Academy.
As the source tells it, the Nerazzurri don’t intend to be embroiled in a bidding war. They will be hoping to strike an agreement with Bergvall and his entourage as early as possible before another suitor sways the young prospect away.
The midfielder’s contract with Djurgarden expires in December 2025.
