Rodrigo de Paul would be thrilled to sign for Inter, according to a report in the Italian media. revealed the Udinese captain would head straight to the Nerazzurri if he could, not least so he could play alongside several fellow Argentines.

Inter almost signed De Paul back in 2019 but Antonio Conte’s arrival as head coach led to a complete change of strategy in the transfer market.

Unfortunately, the Nerazzurri are not in a position to sign the 27-year-old now because they first need at least one significant sale to sort their finances.

Udinese keep asking for €40 million to sell De Paul, who has developed into one of Serie A’s most complete midfielders in recent seasons.

De Paul remains the dream summer signing for Inter, a quality player who would be an excellent reinforcement in Simone Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 system.

Inter’s financial problems could scupper their chances of getting a deal, though, not least because AC Milan are also interested and could beat them to De Paul’s signature.
