Leonardo Morosini says he is giving it all for Brescia, whilst admitting he reciprocates the love of suitors Inter.

The versatile 20-year-old attacking midfielder is being insistently linked with the Nerazzurri, and may move as early as this January.

“I'm pleased to have stayed at Brescia, they are like a second family to me,” Morosini told Il Corriere dello Sport. “Counting my years in the youth squads, I've been here for eight seasons now and I love it. Of course I've heard of the market rumours linking me to Inter, but I never planned to leave.

“I'm an Inter fan ever since I was a child and I played in the Nerazzurri youth squads. I was a ball boy at San Siro from the times of [Roberto] Mancini through to [Jose] Mourinho's triplete. Of course I have a bond with those colours.

“I have the autograph of many of Inter's champions. I remember Adriano, who was a force of nature, and [Wesley] Sneijder, who inspired me in my role. But my idol was and remains Roberto Baggio.

“There aren't many #10s around now. I like [Riccardo] Saponara for the continuity he shows in both phases. Me, I can play as a striker or as a trequartista. I feel excluded when I'm placed on the left of a trident, but I can learn.

“There isn't a footballer on earth who doesn't aim to play for a great club, and I'm no exception. But right now my target is to reach Serie A with Brescia.”

Morosini was priced at €2.5m over the summer, although his value is expected to rise very significantly in the next few years.

“That's an important sum for a kid like me. I'm here because no club in Serie A believed in me sufficiently to invest so much. I'll give it my all and show my worth.

“A move in January? We'll see, but I'm relaxed. I'm only 20 and I have a long career ahead of me.”
