“Finding another Salah for Luciano Spalletti is the main objective for this Summer. A mission clearly given to Ausilio. The player must be strong on his left foot, as a right-winger, who can guarantee goals, with international experience”, Tuttosport report.

The Turin based newspaper offers a list of potential names to meet this criteria: Inter have dreams, but with dreams, there are risks and sacrifices. The favourite is Riyad Mahrez, who Leicester will not easily give away. However, Manchester City are already a large distance ahead of all competition in terms of negotiation. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the Thai owner of Leicester, demanded 70 million for the Algerian in January, almost double what Roma offered in the previous Summer (45 million). This was thanks to the purchase of Coutinho by Barcelona for 160 million euros, an operation that sent the British market into a frenzy.

In addition, there is Angel Di Maria, who Ausilio has been monitoring since a Summer ago, but PSG need to sell before June 30th, whereas Inter still need to balance the books before June 30th. This is because both Clubs are under the magnifying glass of UEFA as part of their corresponding settlement agreements.

Finally, there is Florian Thauvin, who’s had an amazing season with Marseille. However, Jacques-Henri Eyraud, President of OM, has made it quite clear that he not for sale. “Thauvin will not even leave for 80 million euros. We will not take any offer into consideration”.

These are the dreams of Inter but Tuttosport also reports on some of the more realistic targets: Marlos of Shkahtar Donetsk (contract expires in 2019) and Simeone Verdi of Bologna. Atalanta have already said no regarding Josip Ilicic. Alternatively, the futures of Eder and Karamoh are still an unknown.
