Inter has announced the signing of Stefano Sensi from Sassuolo on loan with the option of a permanent deal.

The 23-year-old midfielder made the breakthrough at international level with Italy last November after impressing in Serie A.

Sassuolo's sporting director Giovanni Carnevali recently revealed Inter was the frontrunner to sign Sensi, who had also attracted rumoured interest from fierce rival AC Milan.

And Antonio Conte's side has now confirmed an agreement with Sassuolo.

Inter has paid a reported €5million fee to take Sensi on loan for the 2019-20 campaign and also has the right to purchase him in a year's time for around five times that amount.

Sensi represented Cesena in Serie B and San Marino Calcio on loan in Serie C prior to making the switch to Sassuolo in 2016.

The Nerazzurri have also added Valentino Lazaro and Diego Godin to their squad over recent days as they aim to improve upon last season's fourth-place finish.
