TS: Pezzella, Vermaelen, Nacho, Fazio, Kimpembe, Diop or Tonelli. Who will arrive?
With Murillo leaving and Skriniar a starting player, Inter is searching for a back up central defender. “First name on the list is German Pezzella, an Argentinian central defender with an Italian passport (not interfering with the non-EU slot reserved for Aurier) currently playing in Real Betis in the Spanish La Liga. The cost? 17 million of euros according to his last contract with the Spanish side that expires 2021. But Pezzella is not the only name on the list of Piero Ausilio and Walter Sabatini, who need to find a central defender after the departure of Andrea Ranocchia. Thomas Vermaelen has been offered, but his long list of physical problems do not make him the best of candidates. In the meanwhile Inter is observing what is happening to Real Madri ace Nacho, who recently asked the club to be put on the transfer list. In the background there are French players Diop and Kimpembe, but according to Ausilio, those are not the top ones, instead Lorenzo Tonelli of Empoli could be the alternative to Pezzella.
