Inter have had multiple meetings to set up the purchase of Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo. While they have an agreement in principle with the Neroverdi and the midfielder, they’ll have to wait to finalize it. His arrival hinges on completing a profitable sale, not necessarily in the same role.
Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, all parties have virtually shaken hands. The formula would be a loan with a sizable initial fee plus an obligation to buy for a total of €35M. The package would include young striker Samuele Mulattieri, who shined at Frosinone and has a €5M valuation.
Frattesi signed off on joining Inter. The club hopes he will stick to his word even though it might take a while for the transfer to formally come together. He reiterated that he wanted to stay in Serie A Thursday. The Nerazzurri need to turn a profit before spending. Chelsea didn’t push for André Onana in the recent talks. His departure is not imminent.
Frattesi: “Bid from Premier League? I told Sassuolo that honestly I don’t feel that’s the best step for me now. I’m not ready to go abroad yet”. ?? #transfers

The other candidates to leave are Denzel Dumfries, Joaquin Correa, and Marcelo Brozovic, but neither is particularly close to doing so. The reports about Newcastle lodging a large offer for Nicolò Barella were quickly brushed aside. He’s untouchable.
Our Take on Inter and Frattesi
La Beneamata got a taste of what their midfield would look like in the Nations League’s semi between Spain and Italy, and it’s very appealing. On the other hand, they were in the same spot with Gleison Bremer last summer, and Juventus were quicker to act and had more resources after cashing in on Matthijs De Ligt.
