The agent of Inter loanee Stefano Sensi has confirmed that he has been contacted by several Premier League sides over a potential move for the Italian.

Sensi joined Inter on loan with a €20m option to buy from Sassuolo last summer, and even though he has struggled with injuries during his time at San Siro, it is still widely seen as just a matter of time before Inter make the deal permanent.

However, that has not stopped rumours of an immediate exit, with Napoli reported to be considering a deal, but agent Giuseppe Riso told Radio Kiss Kiss (via Football Italia) that the only interest he has heard of came from England.

“The rumours about Napoli didn’t arrive to me,” he said. “Also, because I don’t think Antonio Conte wants to let him go, he is crazy about him. I don’t think it’s a possibility that he will leave Inter.

"A great coach in England told me: ‘Bring me Sensi, even without legs’. And if a coach from such a physical championship said that… it means that Sensi has football in his mind before having it in his legs.”

In terms of suitors, Manchester City were linked with a move for Sensi back in November, but Riso's words suggest that the 24-year-old won't be leaving Inter this summer regardless of who wants him.

Corriere dello Sport state with confidence that Sensi will officially become an Inter player at the end of the season, despite concerns over the financial landscape of a post-coronavirus world.

The likelihood of a permanent deal came into question earlier in the season after Sensi first began struggling with injury. He started just nine Serie A games before football was postponed, but he did manage three goals and four assists.

Despite his limited appearances, Inter are thought to be happy to strike a deal. The Nerazzuri and Sassuolo are said to have an excellent relationship and have already discussed the details of the deal, so once the transfer window is open, Sensi will finalise a permanent move to Inter.
