Inter could be set to lose both Achraf Hakimi and Lautaro Martinez, with the sale of both players in order to meet financial objectives potentially on the cards.
This is the claim in today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that one sale may not be sufficient to make up for the amounts required to balance the books at the club in the window.
It is further claimed that the possibility of two significant sales was the reason for the departure of head coach Antonio Conte.
Inter are hoping to start a bidding war between Chelsea and PSG for the signature of Hakimi in order to maximize capital gains from the Moroccan’s sale.
Martinez, meanwhile, is being tracked by Atletico Madrid, and Inter hope that interest from fellow Spanish giants Barcelona will drive up the Argentine’s value.
The Nerazzurri are also said to be stepping up their pursuit of Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso, possibly as part of a deal for Hakimi.
On the right side, Barcelona’s Emerson Royal remains a serious target to replace Hakimi should the 22-year-old depart.
Lastly, Sassuolo’s Giacomo Raspadori remains the most likely target to replace Martinez, with the player’s agent Tullio Tinti reportedly having spoken to the Nerazzurri about a possible future during talks to bring newly-arriving head coach Simone Inzaghi to the San Siro, and to extended Alessandro Bastoni’s contract.
