Giovanni Carnevali has said that Inter’s Giuseppe Marotta wanted to sign Sassuolo starlets Giacomo Raspadori and Gianluca Scamacca in the summer, ahead of the pair’s meeting in Serie A this Saturday evening.
The Neroverdi chief lavished praise on his squad, especially the 21-year-old youth academy graduate, and he hinted that the youngster did not try to push for a transfer to the Nerazzurri.
“I will stop to point out the whole team, not just Raspadori,” Carnevali told Il Corriere dello Sport. “He is a striker with extraordinary qualities, as well as being an extraordinary guy. He will not risk losing his head.
“Marotta is someone who sees a lot. He asked me about [Raspadori] and Scamacca, but nothing was done. We want to focus on young people. For him, there was not only Inter.”
Sassuolo will host Inter in Serie A on Saturday evening and Carnevali expects the Nerazzurri to fight for the league title.
“They are a serious contender,” he said. “The league this year seems very balanced.”
