EXCLUSIVE | Internazionale to hijack Trezeguet transfer to Galatasaray
The 23-year-old Egypt international is regarded as one of the best young wingers in Africa, and has been linked with a number of European clubs following his impressive performances last season.
Trezeguet scored 16 goals and provided eight assists in 33 games with Turkey’s Kasımpaşa, leading them to a respectable eighth place in the Turkish Super League.
Trezeguet’s move to Inter is 80% complete according to sources, with the club having a deal in place to loan him out to Parma.
Due to Inter having the maximum number of foreign players among their ranks, the loan deal will have to go through for the upcoming season.
He’s currently in Milan after concluding his meetings with the club officials.
Despite the move close to happening, one stumbling block remains to be solved as Galatasaray, who have been in pursuit of the player for weeks, have offered more money to buy the player from Kasimpasa.
The 23-year-old winger has offers from Zenit Saint Petersburg & Schalke along with Galatasaray & Inter.
Trezeguet started his football career at Egypt giants Al Ahly in 2012, donning the famous red shirt until 2015, winning two CAF Champions Leagues, the 2014 Confederation Cup, one league title, and two Egypt Super Cups.
Overall he made 87 appearances for the Red Devils, before joining Anderlecht, however, he endured a difficult start to life with Belguim’s most successful club, as after just 11 appearances, he was loaned out to Royal Excel Mouscron and then Kasimpasa.
His time on loan saw him impressing, scoring 23 goals while providing 13 assists in 61 appearances with the two clubs across all competitions.
