Inter Milan appear to have taken a step forward in their pursuit of Matteo Politano.
Politano made 110 appearances across all competitions for Sassuolo, scoring 24 goals and supplying 15 assists in return.
He is 24-year-old and has his peak years ahead.
Matteo Politano has represented Italy at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 14 caps and scoring three goals, before making his senior international debut in May 2018. As a member of Italy national football team, Politano won one cap.
Luciano Spalletti is looking to shore up his attacking options and Sassuolo’s Matteo Politano happens to be a target.
Inter Milan have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Italy, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
, “Inter have reached a basic agreement with Sassuolo for Matteo Politano for circa €25m, according to Sky Sport Italia. There was a meeting today between the two clubs and they seem to have edged significantly closer to a deal. The winger will move to San Siro on loan with option to buy for a total of €25m. Also included in the transfer are Inter youth team players – midfielder Gabriele Zappa and centre-forward Davide Merola. More talks will take place tomorrow to whittle down the details and discuss personal terms with the other players, especially as some might require buy-back clauses.”
