Atalanta Prodigy Already Long Shot Target for Inter

Inter have Giorgio Scalvini atop their shortlist to replenish the defense in the future, but he has likely already gotten too expensive for them. Atalanta won’t consider any January offer, and his valuation will continue to balloon, probably pricing out any Serie A team. Atletico Madrid have shown the most interest so far, and they’ll be in the running in the summer, Alfredo Pedullà reports.

The defender spoke about his future to L’Eco di Bergamo (via Fantacalcio).

“If I had to think about playing abroad one day, I’d say that I’d like it to be in the Premier League. I often read the rumors on the papers, many ask me about the transfer market, but I’m focused only on Atalanta. I’m not distracted by the chatter.”

“The problem of many youngsters is that they often lose their way. In that sense, I will always be thankful for the education my parents and the youth academy game me. It’s the best possible school from that standpoint.”

Scalvini was quizzed about Gian Piero Gasperini and the national team.

“It’s pleasing when the coach praises you. I’m grateful for what he teaches me. It has been essential to have him as my first manager among the pros. I work hard daily to earn my spot with the Azzurri. I have a lot to learn, give, and improve. I’ve grown a lot since I made it to the first team thanks to the advice by the gaffer, the staff, and my teammates.
