Inter and Udinese are in talks over the permanent transfer of Rodrigo de Paul in the upcoming January transfer window according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
The Nerazzurri have taken a keen interest in the versatile Argentine international but the deal largely depends on Udinese’s league position come January.
Udinese are understandably wary of letting a player of de Paul’s calibre depart and will be even warier, if come January they remain in and around the relegation zone in Serie A.
If between now and then Udinese’s fortunes change and they boost up the table, they will be more open to dealing de Paul away.
The report from the Roman based newspaper goes on to explain that aside from the obvious cash that will be involved, Inter will soften the blow Udinese will suffer when losing de Paul by offering Federico Dimarco and/or another player as part of any deal.
