Inter are exchanging documents with Empoli for Albania international midfielder Kristjan Asllani in a deal worth €14m, with Martin Satriano going to Tuscany on loan.
The deal is done, an initial €4m loan with obligation to buy if certain conditions are met for a further €10m at the end of the season.
Asllani is only 20 years old and had his debut Serie A season for Empoli, impressing with a goal and an assist in 23 appearances.
Curiously, the only goal was against Inter in a 4-2 defeat at San Siro in May.
As part of the agreement, 21-year-old Uruguayan striker Satriano will join Empoli on loan after his six-month spell at Stade Brestois.
Asllani’s agent Luca Puccinelli walked into the Inter headquarters in Milan this afternoon for the exchange of documents.
The Albanian is seen as the ideal back-up for Marcelo Brozovic and had also been linked with Milan, West Ham United and Leicester City.
