Official: Inter signs Lorenzo Tassi from Brescia

Inter has continued its transfer deadline day raid by confirming the arrival of Brescia wonderkid Lorenzo Tassi.

The 16-year-old only made his debut for the recently-relegated Serie B side in May against Fiorentina, but he has shown enough promise and potential at youth level to prompt a transfer to the Milanese giants.

It is expected that he will not be thrown into the spotlight just yet, but rather the club's Primavera set-up, as general manager Marco Branca is keen to protect him from the excessive pressures of high-level football.

Tassi, an attacking midfielder who is also capable of playing in attack, is regarded as one of Italian football's most exciting young prospects, earning frequent comparisons to ex-Brescia favorite Roberto Baggio, due to their similar playing styles.
