Inter looking at Italy striker Raspadori as Andrea Ranocchia prepares to renew

Sky Sport report today that Inter have met with the agent of Sassuolo and Italy man Giacomo Raspadori to discuss a prospective transfer for the young striker. The intermediary – Tullio Tinti – is also defender Andrea Ranocchia’s representative, with a potential renewal for the long-time Nerazzurro centre-back on the cards as well.

Raspadori, currently on international duty with the Italy team at the Euros, recently declared that he had been an Inter fan as a child and idolised 2010 treble hero Samuel Eto’o. The Nerazzurri representatives discussed a potential future move with Tinti for the 21-year-old – who scored six league goals this past campaign – which could take place in future transfer windows.

Andrea Ranocchia, whose contract expires in a week, is likely to sign a one-year extension – with an option for an additional season – to take his stay in Turin up to over a decade. Meanwhile, Moroccan wing-back Achraf Hakimi is all but set to leave the club having agreed on terms with Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain. The transfer fee remains the sticking point in the negotiations, with €70m being Inter’s asking price, and the club will wait for the French team to bring forward another offer to take the deal over the finish line – although Chelsea also remain in the equation.
