Inter are considering Roma’s Gianluca Mancini and Atalanta’s Matteo Pessina as possible targets for next season, according to Italian media.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the two young Italian players are on the Nerazzurri’s radar, but would only be moved for after sales.

Both players are represented by Italian agent Beppe Riso, who visited Inter’s headquarters yesterday, and it is thought that the club could have been sounding out the possibility of signing either player as part of discussions with the agent.

Roma defender Mancini is set to meet with Roma General Manager Tiago Pinto this weekend to the end of extending his contract, with the Giallorossi ready to double the 25-year-old’s salary.

Inter, meanwhile, see the player as a possible target to replace Slovakian center-back Milan Skriniar, should an offer arrive for the player which the Nerazzurri would be unable to turn down.

Pessina is a player who Inter admire in midfield, with the 24-year-old having shone for Atalanta last season in Serie A as well as looking impressive in Roberto Mancini’s Italy team at the Euros.

However, Inter would only consider his arrival should the likes of Joao Mario and Radja Nainggolan – linked with Sporting CP and Cagliari respectively – leave the club, with the Nerazzurri needing to close on the departures of these fringe midfielders and get their salaries off the book before considering Pessina.
