Inter Negotiating Arrival of Up-and-Coming USMNT Talent

Serie A champions Inter and newcomers Venezia are reportedly negotiating Tanner Tessmann’s switch to Giuseppe Meazza. According to Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, talks are underway, with the Nerazzurri contemplating a cash-plus-player purchase.

Inter, now owned by American fund Oaktree, want a United States international on their payroll. Discussions with another American-led club, Venezia, could result in the 22-year-old Tessmann’s move to Lombardy. However, the parties are still trying to find an ideal formula.

Should Venezia ask for counterparts in a deal, Inter would be willing to offer talented goalkeeper Filip Stankovic and creative winger Gaetano Oristanio. Both youngsters spent last season on loan at Sampdoria and Cagliari, respectively.

On the other hand, Tessmann enjoyed a superb Serie B campaign with Venezia. The USMNT midfielder tallied seven goals and three assists in 41 outings to help the club return to Serie A after back-to-back campaigns in the second tier.

In doing so, he has drawn attention from Inter. The reigning Scudetto holders would ideally sign the ex-FC Dallas man now and let him stay at Venezia for another year to gain top-flight experience. But he’s no stranger to Serie A.

Tessmann collected 20 league appearances during Venezia’s fateful 2021/22 season. Venezia paid Dallas €3.64 to sign him in 2021, tying him down to a four-year contract. With his deal expiring next summer, they’re in a hurry to cash in on their starlet, and Inter are ready to oblige.

While Inter could land a young gun, another could leave. Valentin Carboni is up for sale as Simone Inzaghi’s men look to offload their highly-rated forward to the highest bidder.
