With Arsenal being a club who have a history of monitoring young talents from around the world, there’ll always be stories about players the Gunners could’ve signed and ended up missing out on.

It seems another one can be added to that list now, and that’s Inter Milan striker Martin Satriano.

The teenager left Uruguayan side Nacional to join the Nerazzurri on a €2.4m move last year, and apparently, the Serie A side beat Arsenal in the race for his signing.

The revelation was made by the player’s agent, Nick Maytum, in an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport today, where he claimed Inter Milan were strong when entering the battle for the signing, seeing off the Gunners in the process.

“Inter are Inter, the Nerazzurri snatched him from Cagliari and Arsenal,” said Maytum (via Calcio Mercato).

“Martin was very excited when he signed with the Nerazzurri, despite being young and this signing meant changing his lifestyle from a very young age.”

Despite arriving at Inter Milan last summer, Satriano still couldn’t make his debut for Inter Milan’s first team.

He was called up to the bench for a few Serie A games, but was never brought on.

Now, at the age of 19, perhaps he’ll soon have his first chances this season under Simone Inzaghi.
