Inter have met with Brescia star Sandro Tonali’s agent with a view to signing the player in the summer, as they battle Juventus for the 19-year-old, reports Tuttosport.
Tonali isn’t expected to stay with the Rondinelle beyond this season, with both the Nerazzurri and Juve known to be huge admirers of the 19-year-old.
The Turin daily reports that Inter held a meeting with lawyer Beppe Bozzo and Tonali’s agent Roberto La Florio, in a bid to express Inter’s interest.
Brescia President Massimo Cellino won’t contemplate selling Tonali in the January window, with the side in the middle of a relegation battle.
Further to this, Tuttosport claim that Inter coach Antonio Conte would prefer Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal, given his greater experience as he battles to take the Scudetto away from Juventus.
The Bianconeri have also expressed an interest in Tonali, and the report states that similar to the deal that was completed for Atalanta’s Dejan Kulusevski, Juve may sign Tonali now, but leave him at Brescia until the start of next season.
This is Tonali’s first season in the top flight. He turns 20 years old in May.
