Inter are monitoring the situation of Penarol’s Facundo Torres, with the Uruguayan not a top target for the Nerazzurri but the club admiring his high potential.
This according to today’s print edition, who claim that Inter admire the player’s abilities abilities and potential for the medium- and long-term future future, but do not see a place for the 21-year-old in the immediate future.
The Penarol man is more of an attacking winger, not a profile which is thought to fit well into the 3-5-2 tactical system favoured by new Inter manager Simone Inzaghi.
However, Inter may not wish to miss out on acquiring the services of a player who is tipped for future greatness, as Torres has been by many observers in South America.
Inter have submitted an offer of €12 million for the player, while the release clause in his current contract stands at €17 million.
Meanwhile, Inter continue to asses their options on the left side of Simone Inzaghi’s squad.
Getafe’s Mathias Oliveira has been reported as a target for the Nerazzurri in recent days thanks to his impressive 2020-21 season in La Liga and suitability for the left-sided role in Inzaghi’s system.
The 23-year-old’s contract has a €20 million release clause though the Nerazzurri could convince Getafe to sell him for €14 million.
However, Torres and Oliveira are not thought to be Inter’s preferred options for the role next season, with the more experienced Emerson Palmieri at Chelsea thought to have a profile the Nerazzurri like.
Emerson is valued at €20 million but he could be included in a deal for Inter’s Achraf Hakimi.
