Venezia and US internationalk midfielder Tanner Tessmann has put the brakes on transfer links to Inter Milan this summer.

Speaking to the Men in Blazers podcast, via FCInterNews, the 22-year-old claimed that there is “no news” regarding a prospective move to the Nerazzurri.

Tessmann has been one of the surprise names to be linked with Inter this summer.

Reportedly, the Nerazzurri are eyeing the US international up as a possible midfield reinforcement.

Tessmann certainly would not be a player who Inter sign for the immediate future.

The Nerazzurri already have a well-stocked midfield, with all of Nicolo Barella, Hakan Calhanoglu, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Kristjan Asllani, Davide Frattesi, and Piotr Zielinski options.

However, Inter are certainly keeping one eye on the future in addition to the present.

Particularly under the ownership of Oaktree Capital, the Nerazzurri reportedly want to focus on young players as the base of their project.

And part of that idea means signing players in the present for the future.

For example, Inter reportedly want to sign Sampdoria defender Giovanni Leoni this summer. And then they would loan the teenager back to the Blucerchiati.

Reports suggest that Inter are aiming with something similar regarding Venezia midfielder Tessmann.

Tanner Tessmann Cools Transfer Links To Inter Milan: “No News”

Reports have indicated that Inter have been in talks with Venezia to try and sign Tessmann for a few weeks now.

However, as of yet, a transfer has not happened for the 22-year-old.

There is hardly any guarantee at this stage that Inter will actually sign Tessmann.

And in the meantime, the American is with his national team. He will be participating in the Paris Olympics this summer.

“There’s no news about Inter that I can share at the moment,” Tessmann told Men in Blazers.

“I’m just focused on the Olympics,” he added.
