Brentford and West Ham United may be given a second shot at Inter Milan defender Valentin Carboni after seeing efforts rejected in the January transfer window.

That’s according to Tuttosport, who say there is a growing feeling that Inter will look to sell the 19-year-old when he returns from a loan spell at Monza.

Monza would love to keep him permanently and are making efforts to try and do so after his performances for them this season, but the reality is that Inter are looking elsewhere.

They already received several offers in the January transfer window, with Brentford and West Ham among four clubs who submitted bids, and the growing feeling is that the youngster will be sold in the summer as a result.

The idea is that the Nerazzurri may decide they don’t want him for themselves and if that is the case, the player would be an ideal candidate to be sold so they can record a ‘maxi-capital gain’ on their accounts.

There’s no mention of the price that Brentford, West Ham or any of the other suitors would have to pay but given Carboni only cost €300,000 in 2020, a big sum isn’t needed for them to record a big profit anyway.

Of course, that won’t stop Inter demanding what they like and his performances at Monza have certainly opened up the possibility of them getting a good fee from the Premier League duo or others.
