According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are determined to keep hold of Lautaro Martinez despite interest from Arsenal and Manchester United and would rather sell some of their starlets, such as Andrea Pinamonti and Martin Satriano.
The Nerazzurri must balance the books at the end of the season and, similarly to last summer, they may need to sell some of their stars to make capital gains. Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi left San Siro in 2021 for a combined €183m fee, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri no longer want to sacrifice their stars.
Lautaro Martinez is among the most wanted players in Europe. Scorer of 21 goals across all competitions this season, El Toro’s agents have recently been in touch with intermediaries of Arsenal, Tottenham, Man United and Atletico Madrid, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
However, the Argentina international has recently extended until 2026 and the Nerazzurri are unwilling to sell despite their financial struggles.
According to the report, they’d rather sell some of their emerging talents, such as Pinamonti and Satriano.
The Empoli loanee has scored 12 goals this season and the Nerazzurri value him at €25m. Eintracht Frankfurt are reportedly interested in securing his services in the summer. Satriano has scored four goals while on loan at Brest in the Ligue 1 and can leave for €15m.
Basel will make Sebastiano Esposito’s move permanent for €8m and the likes of Lucien Agoume and Samuele Mulattieri are also expected to leave if the Nerazzurri receive suitable offers. It remains to be seen if their sales will be enough to meet Suning’s financial needs, but the Nerazzurri will try to keep hold of their stars, especially Lautaro.
