Inter will face competition from the Premier League for Udinese midfielder Rodrigo de Paul this summer, according to a report in Italy tonight.
TuttoMercatoWeb have revealed Leeds United are preparing to make a move for the Argentine at the end of the season, with head coach Marcelo Bielsa said to be a huge admirer.
Reports in England earlier this month confirmed they had withdrawn their interest as far as a deal in January was concerned, having baulked at Udinese’s €30 million price tag for De Paul.
Inter are thought to still be hoping of a last-minute deal this month, if Christian Eriksen is sold, but they are likely to revive their pursuit in June, with Tuttosport reporting on Monday that the 26-year-old had already chosen the Nerazzurri as his next destination.
Antonio Conte will have an opportunity to observe De Paul up close on Saturday when Inter play Luca Gotti’s side at the Dacia Arena.
De Paul is reported to be on the verge of hiring Mino Raiola as his new agent.
