Inter are prepared to sign both Malcom and Mousa Dembele to reinforce manager Luciano Spalletti’s squad Tuttosport report.
Inter already have an agreement over personal terms with Malcom but still lack an agreement with his club Bordeaux. Despite being courted by some of Europe’s top clubs, Malcom has chosen the Nerazzurri to progress at. While playing for one of the top clubs would no doubt be appealing, Malcom would risk sacrificing game time that he is all but guaranteed to get at Inter by joining one of the top clubs. His situation is similar to Lautaro Martinez’ who rejected moves to bigger clubs in favour of a switch to Inter.
As for Dembele, Inter met with Spurs officials last week but were unable to come to any agreement over a transfer fee. Spurs want €30 million for the Belgian but Inter are unwilling to pay that for the 30-year-old who has just a year left on his contract with the north London club.
