Serie A Inter Milan Sign Martinez From Genoa

Inter Milan has signed Spanish goalkeeper Josep Martinez from Genoa for a five-year contract, the Serie A champions announced on Tuesday.

The club did not reveal any specifics about the trade, although Italian media said that it is worth around 15 million euros ($16.22 million).

Martinez was a vital performer for Genoa in the league last season, keeping eight clean sheets and guiding the newly promoted club to an unexpected 11th place finish.

Martinez is set to start as a backup to Inter’s 35-year-old custodian Yann Sommer before gradually moving into the main team after next season.

Inter have been without a backup custodian since they decided not to sign Emil Audero on a permanent basis from Sampdoria after a season-long loan spell.
