Inter’s hopes of signing a midfielder before the end of the transfer window would increase if they swapped Mauro Icardi for Paulo Dybala, according to Libero.
Edin Dzeko’s decision to sign a new three-year deal with Roma could persuade the Nerazzurri and Juventus to reconsider the deal they have been linked with all summer.
This would enable Inter to invest their last remaining funds into a midfielder, with Dybala’s arrival effectively resolving their striker shortage for free.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is the biggest name Inter keep being linked with, but Arturo Vidal is an option as well after being pushed to the side-lines at Barcelona.
Inter could decide to invest in a centre-forward nonetheless if Luka Jovic became available at Real Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane does not appear to be keen on the Serbian international, who only joined the club from Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this summer.
Beppe Marotta admires Jovic’s qualities and is prepared to move for the 21-year-old if he could be signed on loan, which would almost certainly need to be paid.
Otherwise, Inter will throw their weight behind a search for a right-sided central midfielder, which is thought to be an express request from Antonio Conte.
