The fine form of former Football Academy Abuja midfield maestro Theophilus Awua for the Primavera side of Inter Milan, hasn’t gone unnoticed by the upper ends at the Milan based side.

Awua arrived Inter from Serie B side Spezia this summer, where he had pre season training with the main team but Peter Fusco, director at Inter confirmed they have been monitoring him since he played against their youth team at the Viareggio Youth Tournament.

” Awua has been with us for a short time, but we know him right from when he played against us at the Viareggio, so at the end of the season, we asked Spezia for him” He told Mondoprimavera.

” He is a midfielder with a great amount of quality, a destroyer in the making and there is still room for him to grow further in the game. He reminds me of Danielle De Rossi but he is less physical but very athletic”.

Fusco also confirmed reports that the 18 year old cost Inter-Milan €200,000 in loan fee, with a fee of £2m agreed as permanent transfer in the summer, if he progresses as expected.

” Yes, the figure of his loan and transfer fee are correct as speculated. For now he could have some difficulty playing in the first team, so the Primavera is the right place for him to grow and improve his game.

“It’s premature to speak on if he will be signed permanently in the summer. The season has just began and it’s right we allow the player progress with his game before speaking about the chances of him signing a permanent deal in June”.
