Inter have been made aware of the availability of Udinese captain Rodrigo De Paul after the Zebrette set their asking price for the midfielder.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Il Giornale, the Argentina international will be allowed to leave the Dacia Arena should Udinese receive an offer of €35-40 million in payments, but they will not consider exchanges to bring the price down.

The Nerazzurri have been tracking De Paul for some time and had shown an interest in January, whilst they face competition in Serie A from Juventus and AC Milan.

However, the only concrete offer so far has come from newly crowned Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, although their €25m bid was knocked back by Udinese last week.

De Paul has caught the eye for Udinese this season and registered nine goals and 10 assists in 36 Serie A appearances from midfield as the Bianconeri finished the campaign in 14th place.
