Botta, 23, will move to the San Siro in the summer when his Tigre contract expires, and said he was excited to follow in the footsteps of other famous Argentines who have worn the club’s colours in recent years.

"I am very happy to have the chance to play in one of the most important teams in the world," he told Corriere dello Sport.

"It is an honour for me to have the chance to wear the Inter shirt and play alongside players like Javier Zanetti, Esteban Cambiasso, Diego Milito and others."
