Inter have other priorities to Hellas Verona’s Marash Kumbulla according to a report from Italian news outlet

From January up until Lazio made an offer recently, Inter were seen as being just a step away from landing the highly rated Albanian national team defender but their pursuit came to a screeching halt when they decided they wanted to focus on signing players who are ready and have experience.

Inter have just spent €45 million to sign Achraf Hakimi from Real Madrid and spending around €30 million on Kumbulla at the same time would be too much.

As per the report, Lazio have made the most recent offer for Kumbulla and that offer consists of €20 million plus a player for a total value of €26 million but the offer falls short of Hellas Verona’s €30 million demands.

Juventus are also understood to be interested but as things stand they are the furthest away of the three sides when it comes to signing him. There has been some contact but nothing more due to the fact they already have two young defenders in Matthijs de Ligt and Merih Demiral.
