Inter could bring Colombian striker Rafael Santo Borre to the Giuseppe Meazza this summer to give head coach Simone Inzaghi further attacking options, according to reports.

Today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport reports that the player’s contract with current club River Plate is expiring, and that Inter are among the clubs monitoring his situation.

Borre is a target of Lazio, with the likes of Manchester United and Feyenoord also thought to be weighing up offers.

Gremio and Palmeiras have also had offers for the Colombian turned down.

Borre has experience in Europe after having been acquired by Atletico Madrid in 2015, though he only ever appeared on loan with Villarreal where he experienced mixed fortunes.

A move to River Plate followed, where the 25-year-old enjoyed more success, scoring 55 goals and making twenty assists in 149 games.

Argentine Lautaro Martinez is currently a starting option in the forward positions at Inter, and the club are not currently considering letting go of him, but should his situation change Borre is a player whose profile has been compared to that of the Inter man.

Inter will also review the situations of Sebastiano Esposito, Andrea Pinamonti, and Eddie Salcedo (the latter returning from his loan with Hellas Verona) as they ensure that a strong complement of forward options is available to Simone Inzaghi for next season.
