Inter are considering a move for Edin Dzeko on a free transfer in the summer, according to a report in the Italian media.
As per FcInterNews.it, Dzeko will leave Roma at the end of the season and is in talks with the Giallorossi to rescind his contract (due to expire in 2022).
Inter are among the clubs monitoring the Bosnian’s situation after trying to sign Dzeko two seasons ago, following Antonio Conte’s appointment as head coach.
The Nerazzurri would be interested in signing the 35-year-old to act as back-up for Romelu Lukaku if he became a free agent.
Dzeko cannot play every match for a top European side anymore but he has proven this season that he can still make the difference for 20-25 games, the report added.
The outgoing Roma forward would be an ideal option behind Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez in Conte’s attack, for either one or two seasons.
Inter are likely to need low-cost deals to reinforce their squad in the summer with the club known to be battling financial problems.
This is the reason they are so interested in following the developing situation between Roma and Dzeko, who could receive partial compensation for his €7.5 million annual salary in the form of a payout.
