Inter Milan youngster ‘flattered’ by Arsenal and Chelsea interest

Inter Milan forward Martin Satriano says he is flattered to be linked with a move to the Premier League amid reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Arsenal has been over-reliant on Pierre Emerick-Aubemeyang for goals this season. But his dip in form and problems off the pitch have seen the club suffer massively in front of the goal. Alexandre Lacazette’s future is also uncertain in the Emirates. Manager Mikel Arteta does not see him in his long-term plans.

As for Chelsea, their new attacking signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have failed to live upto the expectations. Manager Thomas Tuchel does not prefer Tammy Abraham in his playing style. And Olivier Giroud will turn 35 this year, though he is Chelsea’s top goal-scorer this campaign. The Blues are keeping an eye on Dortmund’s Erling Haaland. But any for the Norwegian move is likely to be in the region of £100 million.

As a result, both London clubs want to add a new attacker in the summer transfer window. And they have touted Inter Milan’s young attacker Martin Satriano.

Who is Martin Satriano of Inter Milan?

Satriano started his career with the boyhood club Nacional in his native homeland. There he established a reputation and started a bidding war among Europe’s elite clubs just over 12 months ago. Inter Milan won the race for his signature after they agreed a £2.2 million fee with Nacional.

The Uruguayan striker has impressed the San Siro hierarchy since making his move in January 2020. He has scored six goals and provided one assist in 10 games for the under-19’s this season. He even scored a brace against city-rivals AC Milan for the youth side.

Training alongside Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez will help the 20-year learn from the best strikers in the league. Although Satriano is yet to make his first-team debut, he has made Antonio Conte’s bench on three occasions this season.

With Inter Milan going all in to win their first Scudetto since 2010, Satriano might get his chance to play and showcase his talent in Serie A this season.

“It is flattering, yes. It is a sign that I am doing things well and that I have to continue down that path. I try to use it as an incentive to keep working and be better every day. The Premier League is the number one league in the world in terms of competition, that I think all the players want to play. I think all the teams are very good.”

“It is a very competitive league where any team can beat anyone. But for now, I am totally focused on Inter and to do the best with them.”
