Inter could revive their interest for two long-standing transfer targets in the summer, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Tuttosport’s print edition said the Nerazzurri would need a new fourth striker and could move for either Roma’s Edin Dzeko or Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud.
Inter’s plans in attack could change if the club is forced to sell Romelu Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez, in order to balance their books before June 30.
It remains unclear if the Nerazzurri will need to sacrifice a key player, the Turin-based paper admitted, but if they did sell Lukaku or Lautaro then their dream signing would be Sergio Aguero from Manchester City (but he will be a free agent and would command high wages).
Inter are also thought to be considering a signing in the left wing-back spot and their preference remains Emerson Palmieri at Chelsea, although they also like Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico.
They would then aim to sign an all-round midfielder for Antonio Conte, which could well be Udinese captain Rodrigo de Paul.
Conte will discuss Inter’s transfer plans as part of his upcoming crunch talks with club directors and president Steven Zhang, where Suning’s financial situation should become clearer.
TS warned that Conte would need to consider his options if Inter were forced to continue with heavily limited investments, as has been the case since last summer.
Inter are said to need reinforcements in several areas if they wish to be competitive in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
