Inter have moved on from their pursuit of Hellas Verona’s Marco Silvestri, with the club preferring to sign Luigi Sepe from Parma on loan instead.

This according to Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, which reports that Sepe is currently the favourite target of the Nerazzurri for Samir Handanovic’s backup next season.

Inter are thought to have finding a backup goalkeeper on the agenda for the summer with Andrei Radu looking likely to depart, and have been linked with multiple names with the club hoping to find a reliable option without breaking their budget.

Silvestri had been a player who the club were tracking, but with Verona demanding €8 million for the player’s signature, the club feel that the 30-year-old is out of reach for budgetary reasons.

In the last few days, Sepe has emerged as a name who the Nerazzurri are looking to make a serious approach for, with the possibility of a loan for next season with the option to buy next season.

It is now thought that bringing in Sepe from relegated Parma is the option which the Nerazzurri will pursue going forward rather than chasing Silvestri.
