Inter Land New Goalie, Get Closer to USMNT Youngster

Josep Martinez will take the medicals ahead of his Inter move on Wednesday, and the Nerazzurri are also advancing in the negotiation to onboard Tanner Tessmann from Venezia. The two clubs made strides and are nearing an agreement, Sky informs.

The goalie will join in a €13.5M move plus €2M add-ons. He’ll back up Yann Sommer initially. The Swiss talisman already welcomed his new teammate during Euro 2024. He conceded 68 goals and kept 25 clean sheets in 68 matches with Genoa in the past two seasons. He starred for Las Palmas and RB Leipzig earlier in his career.

Inter are plotting to sign Tessmann permanently too, but he wouldn’t join them right away like Josep Martinez. They want to loan him out for one campaign, preferably directly to Venezia, although the parties haven’t concurred on that for now. They’ll look for another team if the midfielder prefers leaving the Lagunari.

The Nerazzurri offered Gaetano Oristanio in return for the American talent. The two clubs are ironing out the figures and other details. The Scudetto holders would like to have a buy-back clause in case the attacker breaks out.

Our Take on Inter, Josep Martinez, and Tessmann

The mandate to sign the latter probably comes from above, their new ownership, but it’s true that Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Piotr Zielinski aren’t getting any younger. It’d be odd if he didn’t want to stay, as he’d be an excellent fit in Eusebio Di Francesco’s tactics, on top of helping the team that allowed him to rise to relevance.
