Stefano Sensi was on the verge of joining Sampdoria on loan until the end of the season, but his goal against Empoli and Joaquin Correa’s injury could convince Inter to change their transfer strategy.
Sensi should have undergone his medical with the Blucerchiati today ahead of a dry loan deal until the end of the season.
Even Italy coach Roberto Mancini had suggested Sensi move to Marassi to get more playing time ahead of the World Cup play-offs in March.
The former Sassuolo man was introduced in the extra time of yesterday’s Coppa Italia clash against Empoli and scored the winner, helping the Nerazzurri to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Joaquin Correa started the game, but sustained an injury in the first half and left the pitch in tears.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Sensi’s goal and Correa’s issue may convince Inter to change their plans and keep hold of Sensi.
Correa will undergo medical examinations in the coming hours and according to the report, Sensi won’t be allowed to move to Sampdoria until Saturday, but there is a chance that the deal won’t be finalised at all.
“We talked a lot, he’s a very intelligent guy and I am glad he scored the winner tonight. As long as he wears the Inter jersey, I am holding on tight to Stefano Sensi,” Inter coach Simone Inzaghi said last night.
