According to the latest reports from Corriere dello Sport, Inter have started the process of identifying alternate transfer targets should their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku end without success. Indeed, Antonio Conte wants to sign two strikers, one of which will surely be Edin Dzeko as an agreement with Roma will be reached sooner or later.
If the Belgian does not arrive, Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata remains a possibility as someone who is appreciated by many key figures at Inter. Furthermore, despite having a 120 million euro release clause in his contract, Valencia are reportedly willing to sell Rodrigo should a club meet their 70 million euro asking price.
The final name on the list is Timo Werner of RB Leipzig, though it seems likely he will join Bayern Munich on a free transfer next summer, despite Jurgen Klopp’s renewed attempts to bring him to Liverpool now. It will be difficult for the Nerazzurri to enter the race at this late stage.
