Sandro Tonali, Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Pellegrini are three talents, that according to Gazzetta dello Sport are in the crosshairs of the Nerazzurri, but Inter have plenty of competition.
Inter have been working on a deal for Tonali for some time (with help from Marotta), but there is also Juventus, Roma and Napoli chasing him in Italy. However, Tonali is a great admirer of the English Premier League, especially Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea. Everyone will have to deal with Massimo Cellino, who’s current assessment of the 18-year-old is around €20 million, but with this many clubs interested, it could easily increase with a bidding war.
As for Barella, it will be difficult for Cagliari to retain him in June. Among the Italian teams, Inter are in pole position, but Roma have also made some enquiries. The biggest threat to the Nerazzurri comes from Tottenham, who being a Premier League club, should have no problem meeting the asking price, although it remains to be seen just how badly the expense of their new stadium has cost them.
Finally, Roma are confident that they will be able to keep Pellegrini, but Inter, Juventus and Milan are all ready to pounce. Additionally, the Premier League is once again amongst the competition as both Arsenal and Manchester United are believed to be in the market for a player with his characteristics.
