Internacional Confirm €20m Oscar Approach
Internacional have revealed they’ve received an enquiry for highly-rated midfielder Oscar amid rumours suggesting the player is set for a move to the Premiership
With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Internacional confirm an approach for Chelsea target Oscar.
Internacional have revealed they’ve received an enquiry for highly-rated midfielder Oscar amid rumours suggesting the player is set for a move to the Premier League, according to Sky Sports News.
The report claims that European champions Chelsea are leading Tottenham in the race to sign the Brazilian international, with the players agent claiming last week that the Blues had submitted a €25million (£19.8m) offer for the playmaker.
Internacional president, Giovanni Luigi, has now confirmed the club have received an email enquiry for Oscar, with the unnamed club asking about his availability for around €20million (£15.7m), but a deal is a long way from being concluded.
Luigi has been left unimpressed with the proposal, claiming it will take more than €20million to sign the starlet. Luigi is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News:
“We received an email today, but it’s a long way off being done.
“The proposal wasn’t as good as expected. We think Oscar is worth more than €20million.
“It wasn’t an offer; it was more like an enquiry. We are only saying that the numbers have to change.”
Oscar joined Internacional from Sao Paulo two years ago and has become one of the most highly-rated youngsters in South America after a string of impressive performances. His form has earned him 6 international caps and he will showcase his talents at this summers London Olympics, but will he be plying his trade in the Premier League next season?
