Inter Milan are reportedly keen to maintain the services of Francesco Pio Esposito for the future, while devising their plans for next season.

The 18-year-old is the youngest of three brothers who developped in the Nerazzurri’s youth ranks.

Salvatore (23) has already left the nest and currently plays for Spezia. Sebastiano (21) remains on the club’s books, but there’s a possibility he could leave on a permanent basis soon.

On the other hand, Francesco Pio could be the most promising of the bunch.

So according to FcInterNews, the Serie A champions have no plans to deprive themselves of his services.

The young striker had his first experience among the professionals, spending the season on loan at Spezia alongside his brother Salvatore.

The teenager scored three goals in 38 Serie B appearances.

Nevertheless, the Nerazzurri still believe in his talent, considering him a rough diamond, as the source explains.

Therefore, Inter will be looking to add the youngster to their early pre-season camp. This would allow Simone Inzaghi and his staff to analyze his credentials from close range.

Inter Milan To Send Francesco Pio Esposito On Dry Loan

As the report notes, the club will try to find him a new accommodation where he can garner further experience on loan.

However, the Nerazzurri won’t rush their plans. They prefer to take their time until the right opportunity emerges.

Moreover, this will be a dry loan that ensures the player returns to Appiano Gentile next summer.

The source believes this could be a mid-table Serie B club, one that wouldn’t spend the campaign focusing on avoiding relegation as was the case with Spezia.

The other possibility could be a mid-to-low table Serie A side that offers Esposito his first top-flight experience.

The young bomber is tied to the Nerazzurri with a contract valid until June 2027.
