Inter Reportedly Set Sights on Touted Belgian Goalie

Inter have laid eyes on young goalie Tobe Leysen for the future. They hit the jackpot last summer by selling André Onana to Manchester United for €57M and replacing him with Sommer for €6.5M, but their starter is 35, Calciomercato informs.

The Belgian youngster was scouted by Samir Handanovic, who has started working behind the scenes with the Nerazzurri in recent months, in Saturday’s game between OH Leuven and Standard Liege.

Leysen commented on the Inter links on Gianluca Di Marzio’s site.

“It’s pleasing. Samir was a great player with ‘Italian’ traits and incredible reflexes. I watched him a lot in the Champions League. But I’m still getting started, and I’m focused on avoiding relegation. It’d be a very important achievement for us. Then it’s normal that, if you fare well, some teams start tracking you, but I’ll think about it only at the end of the season.”

His agent Mark Volders dished to Tuttomercatoweb.

“It’s really positive that they scouted him. He’s doing well, so it’s natural that top clubs are monitoring him. He has a four-year contract and wants to reach some personal and team objectives first. But you never know what could happen in football. I’ll speak with OH Leuven to see which sides are interested in him.”

Our Take on Inter and Leysen

They definitely won’t redeem their deputy Emil Audero. The smart move would be to sign a prodigy who could eventually take over.
