Inter have made it known that they have no intention of spending €10 million to sign Atalanta’s Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gomez whilst they await the outcome of the meeting between his agent and Atalanta according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
In order for Inter to sign the Argentine, in the event it is decided he will leave the Bergamo club, the report goes on to state that it is essential that they either let him leave for free, let him leave on loan or agree to a swap deal in which Inter would offer either Matias Vecino or Radja Nainggolan in return.
Inter deem these ideas to be fanciful but ultimately anything can happen between the transfer window opening and it closing on February 1.
The report goes on to add that Parma are unwilling to agree to a loan exchange with Inter involving Andrea Pinamonti as, if anything, they would like to sell the Ivorian attacker. A swap between Inter and Udinese involving Pinamonti and Kevin Lasagna is also complicated.
