Inter have done a deal for Empoli and Albania international Kristjan Asllani, on loan with option to buy with Martin Satriano as part of an exchange.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and more, the basic terms were agreed between the clubs this afternoon.

Midfielder Asllani will make the move to Inter on loan for circa €4m with an option to buy for a further €10m at the end of the season.

There will also be a player making the loan switch to Empoli, believed to be striker Satriano, the 21-year-old Uruguayan currently on loan in France with Stade Brestois.

Satriano scored four goals in 15 Ligue 1 matches this season since the January transfer.

As for Asllani, he is still only 20 years old and yet already has four senior caps for Albania under his belt.

A product of the Empoli youth academy who pushed his way all the way through to the senior squad, the midfielder scored one Serie A goal and provided two assists in 26 senior matches this season.

He also participated in the UEFA Youth League for Empoli, scoring three in as many games.

Asllani is seen by Inter as the ideal back-up for Croatian Marcelo Brozovic.
