Forza Italian Football reported on Saturday that Inter have rejected a €5 million offer from Sassuolo for young striker Federico Bonazzoli.
The 17-year-old product of the Nerazzurri youth academy is highly-rated by the Italian youth national team, and has already made several first-team appearances for Inter this season.
Sport Italia report that the main reason Inter have rebuffed Sassuolo's approach for Bonazzoli is because the club does not want to lose one of their best young prospects without a buy-back clause inserted into the deal, something that Sassuolo assumedly have not agreed to as of yet.
This news comes among the recent rumors circulating which have speculated that Inter would be willing to loan and/or sell Bonazzoli as well as another youngster, 18-year-old Primavera starlet George Puscas, to Genoa in a deal involving the transfer of Dani Osvaldo.
In that deal as well, it had been suggested that Inter would want to provide buy-back clauses for both youngsters. It seems that, if we do indeed see either Bonazzoli or Puscas leave, it won't be forever (at least if they move somewhere and continue to impress with their play and develop their skills).
