Inter are courting a number on central defenders but according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Toulouse’s Issa Diop is Inter Sporting Director Piero Ausilio and Technical Coordinator Walter Sabatini’s favourite.
The 20 year old is already one of the best in Ligue 1 and would cost the Nerazzurri about €25 milllion. Diop is not the only defender that Inter have their eyes on from the French top flight. PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe, Lyon’s Emanuel Mammana and Rennes’ Ramy Bensebaini are the others.
The Nerazzurri also have Inigo Martinez in mind but a deal is far from being complete. The Spaniard has a €32 million release clause but Inter do not wish to pay anymore than €20 million to secure his services.
