Inter will need help from Rodrigo de Paul if they are to secure a deal for the Udinese midfielder, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Tuttosport’s print edition said Udinese wanted €35 million to sell their captain, who has interest from several clubs across Europe.

De Paul could give Inter a hand in lowering those demands if he were to make a stance with Udinese, making it clear he would only accept a move to the Nerazzurri.

Inter are known to be popular among Argentine players, as shown by De Paul’s visit to Javier Zanetti’s restaurant in Milan on Thursday.

De Paul came to Milan for bureaucratic reasons and there was nothing transfer-related, the Turin-based paper assured.

Their report did suggest though that it was a sign the 26-year-old would ‘very happily’ move to the city of Milan, which could become useful for Inter if and when they chase a deal.

A report elsewhere today said AC Milan and Liverpool had made an enquiry to De Paul’s agent Mino Raiola, along with Inter themselves.
