Conte wants to keep Esposito as fourth striker in first team, Inter have rejected requests from Roma and Lazio
Sebastiano Esposito will not be a Zaniolo 2.0. The Roma player is considered a good player but not a champion. Whereas what Seba can become is exactly that, a champion. The 17-year-old is attracting clubs across Europe and is imposing himself already in the first team of Inter and should be able to do the same with the Italian national team within a couple of years.
For this reason, Inter have rejected the advances from the capital city for the forward, against both Roma and Lazio as part of Edin Dzeko and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic negotiation. They asked for him but that was simply useless because for Inter, he is priceless and not for sale.
In addition to representing Inter’s future, Seba also does the same to the present as well. Antonio Conte has been very impressed by his talent and intends to confirm him in the first team at the end of preseason. Esposito will be the fourth striker behind Lukaku, Lautaro and Dzeko in the ideas that the former Chelsea coach has.
Poiltano? Inter could consider sacrificing him in case facing important offers from clubs like Fiorentina, Roma and Atalanta.
