Sampdoria are on the verge of completing a deal to sign teenage Inter Milan midfielder Ebenezer Akinsanmiro on loan.

This according to Genoa-based newspaper Il Secolo XIX, via FCInterNews.

Akinsanmiro was part of Inter’s youth team setup last season.

The teenage midfielder has been playing for the Nerazzurri’s Primavera team since his arrival last year.

Inter beat the likes of Real Madrid and Benfica to Akinsanmiro’s signature.

The Nigerian’s talent had caught the eye of a number of clubs. But Inter were the team to convince him with their project.

And the 19-year-old already made one appearance for Inter’s senior team last season.

Akinsanmiro came off the bench for the Nerazzurri in a 4-0 Serie A win away to Lecce in the spring.

However, now the time has come for the young Nigerian to start playing senior football more regularly.

A loan deal always looked the likely route for Akinsanmiro. And according to Il Secolo XIX, it will be in Liguria that the teenage midfielder starts to spread his wings.

There were a few clubs that have shown an interest in loaning in Akinsanmiro this summer.

Lecce were keen to bring the Nigerian to Serie A. And then, in Serie B the likes of Palermo and Reggiana were keen on the teenager midfielder.

However, it is Sampdoria who have advanced rapidly in negotiations to sign the young Nigerian.

The Ligurian club have spent the last week or so negotiating with Inter.

And according to Il Secolo XIX they have reached an agreement.

Meanwhile, there is also an agreement with the player. Akinsanmiro is ready to make the move to Sampdoria to get his first regular experience in senior football.

Therefore, it is now just a matter of a day or two.

Akinsanmiro will soon undergo his medicals and then sign a contract on a season-long loan deal with Sampdoria.
