Inter and Napoli are still on course to exchange two strikers in the upcoming January transfer window, although both clubs are set for fight for Verona midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia today.

The report details how Inter are ready to send 26-year-old Italian forward Matteo Politano to the Partenopei, due to him not fitting in at the tactical system deployed by coach Antonio Conte. The former Sassuolo striker has made 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season for the Nerazzurri but has failed to score a goal or provide an assist. He has also failed to play a full 90 minutes all season.

Therefore, the report continues, the Milanese club want to exchange Politano for the 34-year-old Spanish striker Fernando Llorente. The Spaniard arrived as a free agent in Naples this summer, after his contract expired at Tottenham at the end of last season. Inter believe he would be the perfect backup for main striker Romelu Lukaku, due to their similar physical attributes.

Finally, both clubs are set to fight for the signature of 23-year-old Moroccan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat. The player has been one of the star players for newly promoted Hellas Verona this season, causing both clubs to begin following him with great interest.
