Italian media outlet FcInterNews report that Olympique Marseille have expressed a willingness to sign Inter’s Brazilian fullback Dalbert when the transfer window opens in the summer.
According to the report, the former Nice player, who Inter’s Sporting Director Piero Ausilio courted for a long time before finally closing the deal, was already sought after by Marseille during the January transfer window. However, Inter were not keen on letting the player leave then but are open to the possibility this coming summer given the convincing performances of Danilo D’Ambrosio in that position as well as several reports suggesting that Kwadwo Asamoah will join the club on a free transfer in the summer.
Dalbert has hardly been called on by coach Spalletti this season and the Nerazzurri are keen to earn back some of the €25 million they spent when signing him last summer. The player, born in 1993, was also wanted by Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Tottenham in January but FcInterNews suggest that Marseille are leading the race to sign him.
The problem lies in the structure of the offer presented by Marseille who have so far not been willing to sign him but instead want to loan him. Inter are waiting to see if the Ligue 1 outfit will change strategy and make an offer to sign him on a permanent basis but as of yet no such signs have come from Marseille.
