Git submodule with dependencies

Hi, I have a project that has a git submodule that on its own has NPM dependencies. Locally, I would change directory to the submodule folder and run npm i to install them, but I have no idea how to do the equivalent on Netlify builds.

Are there any possible solutions that I can adapt besides adding those dependencies to my main git repo?

Thanks!
