Inter and Sampdoria in Talks Over Stefano Sensi Loan Move

Sampdoria and Inter have opened a dialogue over Stefano Sensi’s loan move to the Genoa outfit in the ongoing transfer window. According to Calciomercato, talks between the sides are well underway, with the Nerazzurri looking to give their injury-prone star a chance to get his career back on track.

Sensi arrived at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza from Sassuolo in 2019, carrying a reputation as one of Italy’s finest talents. The 26-year-old remains one of the most highly-rated midfielders in Serie A, but a series of injuries have hampered his progress in Lombardy. 

He has made just nine league appearances this season and Inter are keen to ship him out on loan to ensure he receives enough playing time to rediscover his form. Though Sensi initially turned down Sampdoria’s offer a few weeks ago, negotiations between the parties have resumed.

The Blucerchiati are fighting tooth and nail to keep hold of their top-flight status and are currently only four points clear of the drop zone. So head coach Roberto D’Aversa is desperate to boost his squad in January to improve the club’s efforts to avoid relegation come May. 

Adding a new creative midfielder tops Sampdoria’s list of priorities. Sensi could be the catalyst to reinforce D’Aversa’s bid to steer La Samp away from the bottom half of the table, and Inter are ready to sanction the deal. It also appears as if the player is now entertaining the idea of leaving Simone Inzaghi’s men to ensure regular first-team football. 

Sensi has just over two years left to run on his current contract at Inter, and the club are said to be in no rush of selling him. The Nerazzurri would instead want to give the midfielder an opportunity to regain full fitness and reignite his form before making a final decision on his future.
