Chelsea and Tottenham are now at the front of the queue to sign Inter striker Martin Satriano, just months after he rejected a loan move to Nottingham Forest.
The talisman headed to Brest in France instead and his four goals have alerted several European clubs.
Satriano is lined up for a bright future but Inter could allow the Uruguayan to leave the San Siro if the price is right.
The Mirror claims that Chelsea and Tottenham are both keen on Satriano as alternatives to Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane respectively.
At 21-years-old the striker looks set for a really bright future and his performance level has been good in Ligue 1.
Bigger things could beckon though and he’d surely jump at the chance of a move to the Premier League during the summer.
Inter’s financial situation is thought to be precarious. With that in mind, they won’t be in a position to simply say that their prized talent isn’t for sale.
They are, however, unlikely to let him leave on the cheap. Chelsea and Tottenham would have some serious funds to spend though; especially if Lukaku and Kane leave their clubs.
Satriano ship has sailed for Forest
Forest were desperate to add the striker in January. He was eyed at the same time as Marcus Forss from Brentford and Keinan Davis, who the Reds did actually sign.
That move has gone pretty well. The Aston Villa man is currently nursing a hamstring injury, although he has scored five goals since arriving at the City Ground.
Satriano would have been a stellar loan signing for certain. But, he would have only proved a short-term fix for the Reds.
In Davis, Forest chose a striker that could feasibly sign for the club permanently. Satriano would have been short-term and perhaps the Reds made the right choice.
Still, if he ends up at Chelsea or Tottenham, Forest fans might be casting an intriguing eye over London to see how he gets on.
