Inter are among three Serie A clubs currently considering a move for former Sampdoria midfielder and free agent Bruno Fernandes, according to FcInterNews.

Fernandes enjoyed a successful 2017-18 season playing for Portuguese side Sporting CP, scoring 16 goals and providing 20 assists in all competitions, but has now rescinded his contract with the club – along with many other key players – following an incident in May that saw a group of fans break into their training complex and attack several members of the squad.

Before signing for Sporting last summer the 23 year-old, who will represent Portugal at this summer’s World Cup, spent five years in Italy playing for Novara, Udinese and Sampdoria, and now he is attracting interest from Inter, Milan and Roma after becoming a free agent.

According to FcInterNews, the biggest obstacles between Fernandes and a return to Serie A at the moment are his contract demands – a five-year deal worth €4 million per season in wages – and the €4 million commission fee that his entourage would be looking to pocket from any deal.

All three clubs are said to be monitoring the situation, with Roma thought to be the most inclined to make a move at the moment.
