Inter Hold Some Advantages in the Heated Colpani Race

Andrea Colpani has been one of the top Serie A performers so far and has caught the attention of Inter and Juventus in particular. The Nerazzurri might have the inside track to sign him in the future, TuttoSport relays (via OneFootball).

He’s represented by Tullio Tinti, who’s also Simone Inzaghi, Alessandro Bastoni, Matteo Darmian, and Emil Audero’s agent.

Inter have a tighter rapport with Monza than their foes, which could nudge them ahead of the competition in the Colpani deal. They capitalized on it last summer when they signed Carlos Augusto in an affordable operation. The current valuation of the trequartista is €25/30M, but it might grow.

The Brianzoli currently have two Nerazzurri loanees in their squad, the Carboni brothers. Moreover, they could be enticed by Gaetano Pio Oristanio, who’s doing well in his early Cagliari days, and Francesco Pio Esposito, who’s at Spezia. The 18-year-old has scored twice in ten Serie B appearances.

Our Take on Inter and Colpani

They have a few factors working in their favor, but they also have a lot of balls in the air in the midfield, considering the Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s extension talks and their interest in Piotr Zielinski. While you can never have enough good players, and perhaps they plan to cash in on a staple, it might not be the best fit since he’s a pure no.10. They’d have to work to turn him into either a box-to-box or a second striker should they onboard him.
