Inter loanee Sebastiano Esposito is experiencing a mixed season at FC Basel, after he was pushed out of the Nerazzurri ranks last campaign due to lack of game time and the imminent arrivals of Joaquin Correa and Edin Dzeko. He has 12 goals contributions for the Swiss side in 24 appearances, marking an improvement over his one-season two-club loan stint at Venezia and SPAL in 2020/21.
The Brescia and Inter youth product’s improved performances have granted him attention from few Italian top dogs for a potential move in the summer. According to newspaper Il Giornale (via FCInterNews), he is a candidate to act as a back-up for veteran striker Ciro Immobile at Lazio.
However, he is reportedly interested to head back to the Giuseppe Meazza and prove his worth to Simone Inzaghi, who is bound to sign Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo next summer.
Lazio are not the only interested team, as Atalanta and Sassuolo are also keeping close tabs on the center-forward’s development. The Biancocelesti are in the transfer market to reinforce two positions – for a goalkeeper and a proper striker, preferably a young one.
Esposito is currently on a contract deal where Basel have the option to buy. His contract at Inter expires only in the summer of 2025. The 19-year-old has a transfermarkt value of €6m.
