Inter could attempt to further frustrate Lazio by scuppering their plans to sign Colombian forward Rafael Santos Borre, according to a report in the Italian print media today.

As has been reported by Tuttosport today, the River Plate striker could be an ideal replacement for Lautaro Martinez should his potential move to either Barcelona or Atletico Madrid go through.

Simone Inzaghi is keen on the player ad believes his profile suits the squad. The 25-year-old currently plays for River Plate in Argentina where he was the league’s top scorer last season.

Lazio have been monitoring the striker for some time and they believed that their fiercest completion came from English side Watford, who have only just been promoted back to the Premier League.

With a club like the Nerazzurri throwing their hat into the ring though, it could scupper Lazio’s transfer plans for a cheap but high-quality striker this summer.
