Inter have agreed a deal for 15-year-old Bulgarian sensation Nikola Iliev, said his agent. “We were close to Ajax too, but felt Inter are the right club for him.”
The creative midfielder will turn 16 in June and is already playing for Botev Plovdiv.
“We had been close to Ajax too, but we felt Inter are the right club for him,” agent Kaloyan Ivanov told Novapress.
“Their director of sport Piero Ausilio was meant to fly to Bulgaria, but his visit was cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis. If all goes well, he will sign for the Nerazzurri this summer.
“We are ready to separate from Botev in normal fashion, there will be no problems. There was also interest from Levski Sofia, CSKA and Ludogorets, but our desire is to continue his growth process abroad.”
