Inter Priority In January Is To Sign A Striker With Napoli’s Milik The Favorite, Italian Media Claim

Signing a new striker is among the priorities that Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta currently has according to a report from Italian news outlet CalcioMercato.com.

A list of potential candidates has already been drawn up and Inter have already sorted out their preferences but there are some obstacles in Inter’s way.

Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik is currently Inter’s favourite and there has already been initial contact between Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio and his representatives.

Milik is out of contract at the end of this season and is working to speed up his exit by six months but Napoli have clear ideas and those include not granting any discounts and not being open to swap deals for him.

They are currently demanding €18 million, a sum Inter do not want to pay.

Inter hope to be able to convince Napoli to review their stance and possibly accept a swap deal for Milik which would possibly involve Matias Vecino.

The alternatives to Milik include Parma’s Gervinho and Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud. Giroud is open to leaving Chelsea in January due to lack of playing time but Chelsea boss Frank Lampard would like to keep a hold of him.

Should Giroud push his willingness to leave, Inter could potentially pick him up under more advantageous conditions than they could Milik.
