Inter are still interested in signing Manuel Lazzari from Lazio, with the operation to sign the 27-year-old dependent on the situation at the Biancocelesti.

This according to Rome-based newspaper Il Tempo, who report in today’s print edition that Lazzari could be sold in order to raise money for incoming transfers desired by new manager Maurizio Sarri.

Lazzari is a player who has been linked to Inter in the window, with the Nerazzurri looking for a replacement for the soon-to-depart Achraf Hakimi and Inter manager Simone Inzaghi reportedly keen on a reunion with the player.

However, recent reports suggest that the target who Inter are most closely pursuing for the position is Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin at the moment, with the London club reportedly considering offering the Spaniard on loan with an option to buy.

Nevertheless, Lazzari still remains a thought in the mind of Inzaghi and the Nerazzurri directors, who know that the player would likely take little time to adjust to the head coach’s ideas and methods having worked with him at Lazio for the past two season.

With a rumoured move of Joaquin Correa to Paris Saint-Germain from the Stadio Olimpico looking unlikely at the moment, the Biancocelesti could look to move on other players not in Sarri’s plans to raise funds.

In these circumstances, the Nerazzurri could look to move for Lazzari and give Inzaghi the player he prefers.
