Nottingham Forest look unlikely to sign Martin Satriano during the January transfer window, according to The Guardian.
The Reds were keen to take the Serie A man on loan with a view to making the move permanent during the summer.
Now, it seems as though Simone Inzaghi wants to keep the Uruguayan around his squad during the 2021/22 campaign.
Forest have been on the hunt for a striker. They added Keinan Davis on loan from Aston Villa but another attacking player could still be sought.
Satriano has been in and around the first team this season, although he’s failed to start a single Serie A game for the club.
He’s made four appearances from the bench, equating to just 33 minutes of action for Inter.
Satriano caught the eye of Forest last season. He scored 14 goals and claimed six assists in Primavera 1 and earned himself a shot with the senior Inter ranks.
Regular football has been hard to come by, however, and a loan move was mentioned.
Forest have Lewis Grabban, Lyle Taylor and now Davis vying for a starting berth in the team.
A younger striker wouldn’t go amiss though and if a loan move with a permanent deal could be struck, it’s something Forest might still consider.
Exciting: Forest should continue monitoring Satriano
The 20-year-old will remain behind some big names at Inter and it’s perhaps surprising that Inzaghi is keen to keep hold of Satriano.
Allowing him out to play regular football would be great for his development but perhaps it’s a case of needs must for Inter at this moment.
- TARGET: Forest want loanee to sign permanently
Satriano would be behind Grabban at Forest and perhaps Davis will have a big part to play at the City Ground too.
Forest would be wise to continue monitoring this one though. A move for Satriano in the summer wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.
