Rodrigo de Paul is well within his rights to request a move to a top club, Udinese president Franco Soldati admitted today.

Inter are constantly being linked with a move for the 27-year-old, who appears to remain a transfer target even after Antonio Conte’s departure from the club.

A report in today’s media suggested Inter’s new boss Simone Inzaghi would want to play De Paul and Christian Eriksen together, in a 3-5-1-1 system behind Romelu Lukaku.

Speaking to Calciomercato.com, Udinese president Soldati admitted: “A lot will depend on what the player wants, but I’d understand if he decided to join a top club.

“I also wouldn’t be surprised though if De Paul decided to stay in Udine and follow in the footsteps of Antonio Di Natale, not least because the Pozzo family want to build a stronger team for next season.”

Soldati was also asked to give an estimation on De Paul’s price tag, and it looks as if Inter will need to pay big money if they want the Udinese captain.

“His value will depend on how the transfer market evolves and how much money is being spent,” Soldati added.

“I think De Paul could be worth more than the €33.5 million suggested by BeSoccer recently.”

Soldati also gave his thoughts on Conte’s departure by mutual consent, which came about after Suning made it clear they wanted to cut costs before next season.

“The financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the losses many clubs are making are leading to lots of coaching changes,” he explained.

“This is certainly the case when it comes to Conte leaving Inter.”

Inter are due to announce Inzaghi as their new boss on a two-year deal in the coming days.
