Inter are seriously considering signing Lazio’s Romanian captain Stefan Radu on a free transfer to act as a backup for Alessadro Bastoni.

This according to Sky Sport Italia’s transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio who reports that Inter’s Sporting Director Piero Ausilio is in Rome for talks with the players representatives.

Radu was a very useful utility player for newly appointed Inter coach Simone Inzaghi during his over five season in charge of the Biancocelesti.

This, together with the players traits in the dressing room is why Inter and Simone Inzaghi are interested in signing him to act as a backup for Alessandro Bastoni in that central defender role to the left of the back three man defence, the report continues.

“Radu is a player Inzaghi knows very well after their time together and is a player Inzaghi wants to bring with him to Inter.

“This because he considers Radu to be important in terms of how he acts in the dressing room as well as a player. The Romanian defender is a very concrete option and talks are ongoing.”

Radu joined Lazio in January back in 2008 on loan from Dynamo Bucharest for a reported fee of €1 million, a move which was made permanent in June of that year for a further €3.5 million.

Since making the move to the Biancocelesti Radu has featured 412 times across all competitions scoring 8 goals in the process, winning three Coppa Italia and three Supercoppa Italiana.
