Inter have agreed personal terms with Ante Rebic as they consider a deal with Fiorentina for Matteo Politano, according to Tuttosport.
Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio have made several approaches for the Eintracht Frankfurt forward this summer, earmarked as a possible fall-back option if they could not sign Romelu Lukaku.
Rebic would earn €4 million annually with the Nerazzurri but Inter first need Eintracht to drop their €40 million asking price.
The money to sign the Croatian would come from Politano’s move to Fiorentina, who are prepared to offer up to €30 million.
Politano is due to be Antonio Conte’s fourth attacker this season behind Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez.
Inter made his move from Sassuolo permanent for €20 million in June and are open to selling if Fiorentina increase their offer slightly.
The Viola’s owner Rocco Commisso must agree to invest a little more in Politano if the double deal is to take place.
Politano played the final 13 minutes of Inter’s win over Lecce at San Siro on Monday, replacing Lautaro Martinez.
