Napoli could offer Arkadiusz Milik to Inter in a part-exchange deal for Mauro Icardi, according to La Repubblica.

The Partenopei have not made an official approach for the forward yet but Aurelio De Laurentiis is studying how best to make a convincing offer.

Icardi has been left out of Antonio Conte’s squad for Inter’s preseason tour in Asia, with the Nerazzurri boss earlier confirming he was not part of his plans this year.

Inter and Napoli could also meet in the transfer market elsewhere, as both clubs are said to be fond of Lille’s young forward Rafael Leao.

The Nerazzurri are still trying to sign Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko, but talks are progressing very slowly with both clubs.

Manchester United have dropped their asking price for the Belgian from €89 million to €83 million, but they will not go any further and they want the money straightaway.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward does not intend to accept Inter’s latest offer, worth €70 million payable in three installments, and there is no imminent sign of an increased bid.

Antonio Conte will meet Suning’s boss Zhang Jindong in Nanjing next week, along with Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio, in an attempt to speed up Inter’s pursuit.

The transfer window closes on 8 August in England and this means the next few days will be decisive in the race to secure Lukaku, who is also attracting interest from Juventus.

Inter are moving closer to signing Dzeko from Roma as the Giallorossi accelerate their chase for Gonzalo Higuain, whom Juventus no longer want.

Should neither player arrive Inter will survey a series of alternative options, although they could leave it until the end of the window to secure the best deal.

Rodrigo from Valencia, Ante Rebic from Eintracht Frankfurt, Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain (described as ‘costly’) and Duvan Zapata from Atalanta are all potential Plan Bs.
