It has been widely thought and reported that Paris Saint Germain’s Javier Pastore was Inter’s number one target for the role of trequartista with Manchester United’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jiangsu Suning’s Ramires the alternatives.
However, Corriere dello Sport report that while the number one target is Argentine, it is not Pastore and it is instead Boca Juniors man Cristian Pavon. The Nerazzurri have sparked an interest in taking the 21-year-old, who has also been linked with Premier League side Arsenal, on a loan basis.
The Argentine international has made 12 appearances for the Buenos Aires side this season and netted three goals and contributed six assists. He signed a new five year contract back in August which ties him to the club until December 2022.
Moreover, Pavon is working on acquiring a European passport which will help Inter out due to having just one non-EU spot remaining and other targets with non-EU status in mind.
