Inter’s Proposed Loan Swap With Napoli For Fernando Llorente Has Slowed Down, Olivier Giroud Idea Returns

Inter have identified both Olivier Giroud and Fernando Llorente as options to strengthen the attack in the upcoming January transfer window, but neither deal is close to completion, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the possible exchange of Inter forward Matteo Politano to Napoli for 34-year-old Spaniard Llorente has slowed down in recent days, due to coach Gennaro Gattuso remaining a little unconvinced. Whilst it’s not a definitive rejection, the Nerazzurri have begun to think more about Giroud again.

The Chelsea striker’s contract expires with the South London club in June, the report continues, and so it’s likely that the Blues will send him away in January rather than losing him on a free transfer. Both Lyon and Bordeaux are keen on the Frenchman, whilst Inter are following him closely.

However, neither deal can be completed whilst Politano remains at Inter, the report highlights, meaning that Inter will need to find a new home for the 26-year-old Italian soon before they can sign a new forward.
