Inter have stepped up their interest for Paulo Dybala after their bid to sign Edin Dzeko failed last night, according to La Repubblica.
Antonio Conte has asked Beppe Marotta to accelerate talks with Juventus, having seen his second key transfer target disappear for good.
Dybala still has ‘a lot of doubts’ about joining Inter, but he is not in the mood to help Fabio Paratici secure a healthy profit from the forward’s sale either.
Paris Saint-Germain are the only other club being linked with La Joya, but French champions would prefer to sign Ousmane Dembele instead of the former Palermo man.
Neymar’s future remains extremely unclear with two weeks of the window left as PSG continue talks with Barcelona.
Any deal for the Brazilian would decrease Dybala’s chances of moving to Paris, because Barca are expected to offload some of their own players in an eventual agreement.
Inter have pursued an Icardi-Dybala swap deal since the beginning of the summer but it was always likely to be a last-minute deal, if at all.
Conte and Marotta are hopeful the switch can be completed, but time is starting to run out.
