Inter Announce Signing of Sassuolo Forward Matteo Politano as Transfer Drive Continues

​​Inter have officially confirmed the signing of Matteo Politano from Sassuolo on a one-year loan with a right to buy next season.

After confirming the transfer of Radja Nainggolan from Roma earlier in the week, Inter have continued their transfer dealings with the signing of Politano, a forward who scored ten goals and contributed four assists in 36 Serie A games for Sassuolo last season.

An official statement on Inter’s ​website reads: “Matteo Politano is officially an Inter player. The Italian attacker has joined the Nerazzurri on a one-year loan with a right to buy next season.

“The 2017-18 season saw him really emerge as a top player, as he played a key role in keeping Giuseppe Iachini’s side in Serie A. He put in a solid run of impressive performances, scoring 10 league goals and one in the TIM Cup. 

“This duly earned him a call-up to Roberto Mancini’s National Team, making his Azzurri debut in a friendly against Saudi Arabia on May 28th. He’s left-footed with rapid pace and smart technique. 

“He’s versatile (can also play on the wings and in numerous roles across the front) and is also a threat from set-pieces. 

“Luciano Spalletti will now have Matteo Politano available as an additional danger man up front. #WelcomeMatteo and best of luck ahead of your new Inter adventure!”
