Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has given updates on some key transfer plans for the Nerazzurri.

Speaking at the form for the opening of the transfer market in Rimini, as reported by FCInterNews, the Inter executive confirmed that the Nerazzurri are interested in Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Lazio’s Manuel Lazzari, but emphasized that the club will not spend beyond their means to acquire them.

Marotta had earlier confirmed that the Nerazzurri are close to finalizing a deal to sell Achraf Hakimi to PSG, and it is believed that the club will look to find a replacement for the Moroccan.

Bellerin and Lazzari are two names which have come up with as possible replacements for Hakimi, but Marotta’s words are mixed as to the Nerazzurri’s intentions on both players – they are interested in signing either, but only if they can do so within financial limits.

Asked about the two players, this is what Marotta had to say:

“They are interesting, but we will act calmly. We cannot make heavy investments, and we will approach things creatively, trying to seize opportunities.”

“Many clubs will not be able to spend practically anything,” he said of the window, “Administrative management is very important.”

Meanwhile, Marotta also stated that the rumour of a swap deal with Fiorentina which would see La Viola goalkeeper Bartolmiej Dragowski join Inter and Nerazzurri midfielder Stefano Sensi go the other way is not likely to happen:

“The possibility does not exist. We will see what the market offers, but without going crazy.”
