Sampdoria are pushing to sign Inter Milan wingback Mattia Zanotti this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper report that Zanotti is one of several Nerazzurri players Sampdoria are keen on.

Inter wingback Zanotti spent last season on loan with St. Gallen in the Swiss Super League.

The Italy Under-21 international got his first regular experience in senior football.

Zanotti made a total of 34 appearances for St. Gallen. He scored three goals and made five assists in the process.

Prior to last season, Zanotti had come through the youth ranks at Inter.

The 21-year-old played all the way up to the Primavera or Under-19 level for the Nerazzurri. He did also receive a first team debut under Inter coach Simone Inzaghi.

But last season was an important one for Zanotti’s growth.

The campaign saw the young wingback start to play at the senior top flight level as a starter.

The question now is where Zanotti will go next.

There is certainly no possibility of the 21-year-old having a place in Inter’s senior squad next season.

Therefore, Zanotti will be on the move to a new club. Whether this is to be on another loan, or in a permanent transfer, remains to be seen.

Sampdoria Pushing For Inter Wingback Mattia Zanotti

Serie B side Sampdoria have already secured the loan signing of one Inter player for this summer.

Midfielder Ebenezer Akinsanmiro is set to make the switch to the Blucerchiati for next season,

But that may not be the end of the business between Inter and Sampdoria.

Firstly, there is teenage defender Giovanni Leoni. Inter are increasingly pushing to sign the 17-year-old.

But in the other direction, Sampdoria are still keen to bring in at least one more Inter player.

Tuttosport report that wingback Zanotti is a big target for the Ligurians.
