Inter could insert Valentino Lazaro into a deal for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.
Inter have identified Werner as a player that they could go in for in the event that Lautaro Martinez is to depart the club in the coming months amid continued links with a move to La Liga powerhouses Barcelona.
Werner has a €60 million release clause in his current contract with the Bundesliga side, who he has played for since 2016, but Inter would like to reduce the cost of a deal for him and in order to do so they could offer Lazaro.
RB Leipzig showed an interest in signing Lazaro back in the recent January transfer window but the player opted to go out on loan to Newcastle United instead.
The Austrian national team player could however end up at RB Leipzig in the near future as part of a deal for Werner, who has also been heavily linked with a move to Champions League holders Liverpool.
