Longo on his way to Espanyol

Samuele Longo has confirmed whispers that he will be spending the season on loan at Espanyol from Inter.

“Finally today I depart!” a note on his Twitter account read. “I can't wait to start this new adventure. Vamos periquitos!”

The forward is highly rated by the Beneamata and he was signed outright from Genoa in the summer after helping Inter’s youth team win the NextGen series earlier this year.

Longo, 20, is an Italian Under-21 international who Inter hope will benefit from regular first team football this term.

Inter loaned Espanyol Philippe Coutinho in January and he has now returned to San Siro after shining in the Spanish game.
