Inter are rivalling Borussia Dortmund for the signature of Argentine midfidler Maximiliano Meza according to Fox Sports.
The Independiente midfielder has a 12 million release clause in his contract – that runs until the end of the 2019/20 season – but the Argentine club are hoping to raise that fee to somewhere between the 25-30 million to avoid losing him for such a low fee.
Meza, 26, has played 20 times this term, predominantly as an attacking midfielder but also as a winger and second striker, scoring three goals and tallying three assists.
He is the latest Argentine talent to come in to links with Inter, who have already secured Racing Club’s Lautaro Martinez ahead of next season.
It is unknown if Meza holds a European passport or has the possibility of acquiring one as he would not count against the Nerazzurri’s non-EU player quota if he was to have one. Not having one or the chance of having one could mean Inter relinquish their interest in favour of a more household name who would fill a non-EU spot instead.
