Despite the claims from Italy on Thursday that a deal between Leicester City and Inter Milan was done for Stefano Sensi, the player is still in Italy.

It was suggested he may not arrive before the weekend, and that could still be the case, as Alfredo Pedullà brings his take on the situation, relayed by Sport Italia.

The journalist explains that the midfielder is ‘waiting for the go-ahead’ to travel to Leicester, but makes it clear that everything is ‘in the home straight’.

The transfer received the ‘endorsement’ of Enzo Marsca from the off, which led to Chelsea recalling Cesare Casadei from his loan with the Foxes.

As previously revealed, Leicester City are expected to pay €2m for the Italian player, whose contract with Inter Milan was set to expire at the end of the season.

It was reported that €1m of that would arrive immediately, with the remaining €1m only to be paid once the Foxes were promoted to the Premier League.

Signing for Inter from Sassuolo back in 2020 for €25m, Sensi has gone on to make 56 appearances for the Serie A side, scoring four goals and assisting another four.
