Leicester City midfielder offered to Inter Milan

Adrien Silva of Leicester City has been offered for transfer to the Nerazzurri. The Portuguese international has only made two appearances with the Foxes and struggled to break into their XI.

The midfielder has also drawn interest from Genoa and Roma. According to Sky Sports, this signing would make sense if Roberto Gagliardini were to find a new club. Fiorentina have been linked with the young Italian Nerazzurri midfielder.

Danilo D’Ambrosio reflects on the Sassuolo match

After the game, D’Ambrosio caught up with Sky Italia,

“We’ll arrive in Turin still slightly irate because we should have won against Sassuolo, irrespective of whether we were playing in front of a full crowd or not. Now, we absolutely have to recover the points we lost. The Granata are a tough side to face and play a game that they stick to whether they’re at home or on the road. They have several excellent strikers capable of playing international football, while their midfield is a complete one with many players who know Serie A well. Therefore, they’re a difficult side to face.”

The Italian defender was also quoted that the teams goal is not only to qualify for Champions League by being top three but beating out Napoli.

Inter only need fourth to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League but D’Ambrosio said fourth place would be a disappointing finish. He also mentioned going all the way in Coppa Italia and the UEFA Europa League.
