Inter have three names in mind as they look to strengthen at left wing back in the upcoming January transfer window according to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Nerazzurri are on the look-out for a new left wing back due to Kwadwo Asamoah’s injury problems and because they feel they need a higher quality left wing back than either Cristiano Biraghi or Valentino Lazaro.
Marcos Alonso is the first name that Inter are considering but he will be far from cheap. Chelsea are understood to be demanding between €30 and €40 million for him. Inter will attempt to land him in a loan with option to buy deal and do not wish to spend any more than €20 million.
Alonso’s Chelsea teammates Emerson Palmieri is also believed to be under consideration. Inter face competition from Juventus for the Italo-Brazilian, who seemingly has his heart set on a contract extension with the Blues.
The final name is Paris Saint Germain’s Layvin Kurzawa. The 27-year-old has found playing time very limited in the French capital today and no contract renewal looks to be forthcoming from the Frenchman, whose deal expires at the end of the season.
