Inter are planning to offer new contracts to Sebastiano Esposito, Lorenzo Pirola and Tibo Persyn. They will join the first team in the upcoming summer training camp and have the chance to fight for a first team spot.
GdS: Inter youngster Lorenzo Pirola has signed a new five-year contract
The report details how the Nerazzurri’s management believe that the 18-year-old Italian is the future of the club’s defense, impressing with the Primavera squad this season. Inter coach Antonio Conte has promised to give Pirola more time with the first time from May onwards, in order to help convince the player to sign the contract, that will expire in 2025.
Several clubs have already asked about Pirola, the report continues, but the 18-year-old decided to stay with Inter and join their project. The Italian teenager has made 20 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1800 minutes. In that time, he has provided one assist and helped the side keep 10 clean sheets. He is one of the most exciting young players in Inter’s youth set up.
Speaking of Pirola:
"Man City, Chelsea & Borussia Dortmund Enquire About Inter Starlet Lorenzo Pirola
Several clubs have made enquiries about Lorenzo Pirola but Inter have clear intentions with regard to what they are going to do with him according to a report from Italian news outlet seriebnews.com.Manchester City, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund have all made enquiries whilst Juventus have also approached the player.However, Inter have clear ideas for Pirola, who is reportedly set to sign a contract until 2025.The report goes on to explain that Inter could insert the highly rated Italian youth national team defender into a deal for Hellas Verona’s Marash Kumbulla by offering him on loan.He could join the Verona based outfit on a two year long loan in order to get some regular playing time which will help aid his development as a player."
Could anyone provide some information about this lad? I recall only that Conte said before that he intend to give him chance in the first team but that is all.
