Conte Growing Restless As Inter Chase Lukaku & Dzeko Deals

Conte Growing Restless As Inter Chase Lukaku & Dzeko Deals

Antonio Conte is becoming restless as Inter continue to work on deals for Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko, according to La Repubblica.

Inter flew out to Singapore yesterday for their preseason tour in Asia and at the moment Conte only has George Puscas, Samuele Longo and three Primavera forwards up front.

Lukaku’s probable arrival was one of the reasons Conte agreed to join the Nerazzurri, but Manchester United still want €80 million to sell the striker.

“Reports in Spain yesterday assured Inter had already agreed a deal, but until Suning have given their OK to any move – and this can always take time – it’s best not to get carried away,” the paper warned this morning.

If Inter can agree a deal to bring Lukaku to San Siro then they will put talks for Dzeko on hold until the end of the transfer window.

Roma still want €20 million for the Bosnian, despite the fact he has now entered the final year of his contract, and Inter would have no intention of paying that much.

Failure to sign Lukaku could persuade them to change tack, though, because Conte wants at least one forward to arrive quickly.

“In seven days’ time Inter will have to play Juventus in Nanjing, or rather Conte’s old nemesis,” La Repubblica continued.

“As things stand they would have to start with Facundo Colidio and George Puscas up front: kids.”

Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge has been offered to Inter as a low-cast alternative, but Conte does not appear to be interested.
