Leicester City approve signing of Inter Milan and Italy Midfielder – MLS Clubs Show Interest

Leicester City will not sign Inter Milan midfielder Stefano Sensi on a free transfer this summer, but there is interest from MLS.

One thing is absolutely certain: Sensi will not be an Inter player next season.

The 28-year-old’s contract with the Nerazzurri expires at the end of June. And there would be absolutely zero chance of him being offered a contract extension.

Sensi will therefore leave Inter on a free transfer, five years after signing from Sassuolo.

After a promising start to his time at the Nerazzurri, it has been a tough time for the midfielder.

Injuries played a role – briefly – in limiting Sensi’s contributions.

The Italian international made a total of 56 appearances for the Nerazzurri. He scored four goals in all competitions.

Moreover, Sensi spent the second half of the 2021-22 season on loan with Sampdoria. And he was loaned out to Monza for the whole of last campaign.

Leicester City had been interested in signing Sensi in the January transfer window.

The Foxes wanted to bring in the Italy international to bolster their ranks as they push for promotion to the Premier League. Leicester manager Enzo Maresca is a big fan of Sensi.

Inter, for their part, would have been more than happy to sell the former Sassuolo midfielder for a small fee six months before his contract expires.

However, the move fell through on the final day of the transfer window.

Therefore, Sensi stayed at Inter for the rest of the current season.

That would have opened the door for Leicester to sign Sensi on a free transfer.

However, FCIN report that the Foxes’ interest in the 28-year-old has passed. They have already won promotion to the Premier League – so they have other targets with a bigger budget.

As for where Sensi will go, that’s currently a mystery.

FCIN reports that there are clubs in MLS who are keen on the Inter midfielder, however.

But Sensi is also waiting to see if there is any serious interest in Europe.
