Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to bring Martin Satriano to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report by Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb (via Sport Witness), who claim that Antonio Conte is keen to bring the centre-forward who he signed for Inter Milan back in 2020 to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at the end of the current campaign.
The report goes on to cite an interview with the 21-year-old himself, in which the Uruguayan suggested that he was flattered by the interest of the 52-year-old Italian.
Regarding Spurs’ reported interest, the Inter starlet said: “I have heard and read about Tottenham, I am obviously glad that some teams have noticed me, but only because it means that I am doing well. I am young and I have to grow much.”
Considering the sheer amount of potential Satriano quite clearly possesses, it is unsurprising to learn of Conte’s interest in a move to bring the forward to north London this summer.
Indeed, having been sent out on loan to Stade Brestois in January, the £3.6m-rated attacker has highly impressed over his 15 Ligue 1 appearances, scoring four goals and averaging a SofaScore match rating of 6.81 – ranking him as Michel Der Zakarian’s joint tenth-best performer in the French top flight.
These metrics have led FBref to compare the youngster to a number of exciting talents in Europe’s big five leagues, such as Chelsea’s Armando Broja – who has scored six goals over 32 Premier League appearances while on loan at Southampton this season – Sevilla’s Rafa Mir and Lens’ Arnaud Kalimuendo.
“Already last year he trained a few times with the first team. The truth is that he deserves it because he trains well, he is a serious and humble boy.
“I have no doubt that everything that happens to him will be positive, whether here or playing somewhere else to gain playing time and then come back. He’s a humble boy who understands where he is, who keeps both feet on the ground and trains like a beast.”
As such, should Fabio Paratici be able to convince the 20-goal striker of a move to Tottenham this summer, the Italian sporting director would very much look to have landed an extremely exciting talent – perhaps even one who could go on to emulate Broja’s impact on the English top-flight in the current campaign.
