Written By Onyeka Daniel

More Details

According to a report from Sky Sport Italia, the Nerazzurri are reported to be in advanced talks with Serie A newcomers Venezia for USMNT midfielder Tanner Tessmann, but would leave him on loan for a season.

According to the report, this is a move that fits the fact both Italian top flight clubs are now owned and run by Americans. It would also include a player exchange, with names mentioned including goalkeeper Filip Stankovic and creative midfielder Gaetano Oristanio.

The plan would be for Inter to buy Tessmann, who turns 23 in September, then leave him on loan at Venezia for next season so that he can gain more Serie A experience. He is not entirely new to the Italian top flight, having made 20 Serie A appearances for Venezia in the 2021-22 campaign.

Tessmann remained on the Laguna in Serie B, reaching the play-offs in 2022-23 and then managing to gain promotion this season.It was a breakout campaign for the American, as he scored seven goals and provided three assists in 41 games for Venezia this term.

He was purchased from FC Dallas in the summer of 2021 for €3.64m and his current contract runs to June 2025.Bologna had also been linked with him recently, a club run by Canadian Joey Saputo.

Inter would be hoping that he can become a better player in the coming season, so they can pick him up for the 2025-26 season, at which point, they should be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan and possibly Piotr Zielinski, owing to their age.


Inter and Spezia have also been reported to be in talks regarding both striker Francesco Pio Esposito and wingback Emil Holm, according to a separate report from FCInterNews. The report has it that Spezia want to keep Esposito for another season, whilst Inter are considering a move for Holm as a Denzel Dumfries Replacement.

Spezia’s Sporting Director Stefano Melissano was at Inter’s headquarters recently. The executive met with Nerazzurri directors on Wednesday. And according to the source, there were two players in particular whose names the executives from the two clubs discussed. The first was a player who Inter and Spezia have already made a deal for.

18-year-old striker Francesco Pio Esposito already spent the season just gone on loan with the Aquilotti. However, the deal that the two clubs agreed last summer was just a season-long loan deal. Spezia exercised an option to sign Esposito permanently, but Inter had a buyback option. Therefore, Esposito is back at Inter now.

And it is up to the Nerazzurri to decide on his future. The report confirm that Spezia want to keep hold of Esposito. The Ligurian club are happy with the teenager striker’s performances over the season. However, according to the report, Inter would prefer to give Esposito experience in Serie A.

Therefore, Inter’s plan would be to send the teenager on loan to a lower-midtable club in the top flight for next season. Nevertheless, Spezia have made clear to Inter in Wednesday’s meeting that they would like to bring Esposito back next season. And according to the report, if Esposito is to have another loan spell in the second division rather than with a Serie A club, then Spezia would be the likeliest destination.

But Esposito’s name was not the only one that Inter and Spezia discussed this week. The two clubs also touched on 24-year-old wingback Emil Holm, who spent last season on loan with Atalanta. However, La Dea have no intention of making the Sweden international’s deal a permanent one. Therefore, he is back at Spezia for the time being.

He’s expected to be on the move again this summer with a number of top clubs in Italy interested, including Bologna and Roma. Hence, Inter made it clear to Spezia that they see Holm as a target in the event that they sell Denzel Dumfries this summer. The Nerazzurri want to either agree a contract extension with Dumfries, or else sell the Dutchman.
