Inter are expected to welcome striker George Puscas back to the club next week after Palermo went bust in Serie B, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The Rosanero had an obligation to buy the under-21 international before Sunday but failed to register for Italy’s second tier next season.
Inter were due to record a capital gain of more than €3 million for Puscas, who scored nine goals and created three assists in Sicily last year.
They will now have to find a new destination for the Romanian, although it should not damage their quest to satisfy Financial Fair Play requirements before the end of the weekend.
Inter are on the verge of securing three more player sales as they chase profits from their brightest academy talents.
The Nerazzurri will meet Atalanta today to finalise a deal for defender Riccardo Burgio while Andrea Adorante (€4 million) and goalkeeper Brazao (€6.5 million) are joining Parma.
Yann Karamoh could also sign for the Ducali but that would be on loan, with further talks planned this afternoon.
Lyon have made an offer for full-back Dalbert, meanwhile, but the French club have had it rejected.
