Inter confirm Giovinco talks

Inter “made enquiries after Sebastian Giovinco and will see what happens over the next few days,” confirmed director of sport Piero Ausilio.

There were reports over the weekend that the Nerazzurri were trying to intercept the negotiations between Parma and Juventus, the two clubs who co-own the Atomic Ant.

If they do not agree on how to continue the co-ownership deal or sell the remaining 50 per cent of his contract, Giovinco could go to a blind auction.

“We have made enquiries after Giovinco by contacting Parma,” noted Inter director of sport Ausilio on Sky Sport Italia.

“We are tracking the player and will see what happens over the next few days.”

The Nerazzurri are also interested in Siena striker Mattia Destro, currently owned by the Tuscan side and Genoa.

“Destro had a positive campaign and he knows that he was not abandoned by Inter, but rather had to be sacrificed so that Inter could achieve better results in the short-term. Now we’ll see if it’s possible for Destro to have a future at Inter.”

Destro grew up in the Inter youth academy, but was sold to Genoa as part of an exchange deal.

The San Siro giants are celebrating this weekend after winning the Primavera youth team Scudetto.

“It’s not unexpected, as we have been churning out talents for 10 years. We won around 15 trophies in this decade and that comes from solid planning,” added Ausilio.
