Inter are prepared to bring former striker Eder back to the club at the end of January if they cannot finance moves for other attackers, according to transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio tonight.
The 34-year-old, who is currently at Suning’s other club Jiangsu Suning, has already accepted the move in principal after rumours first emerged last night.
Inter will not finalise a deal now because the transfer window has only just begun and there could be more appealing options which appear in the coming weeks.
Should the Nerazzurri be unable to offload either Christian Eriksen or Andrea Pinamonti, however, they would be able to secure the Italian-Brazilian’s services at a very low cost.
Eder scored 14 goals in 86 appearances in all competitions for Inter between 2016 and 2018.
His first move to the club also took place during the January window, after then-head coach Roberto Mancini made a last-minute change of heart and ordered his directors to sign Eder instead of his Sampdoria team-mate Roberto Soriano.
