Inter could be priced out of a move for Lazio’s Manuel Lazzari despite the player being a top target to replace the outgoing Achraf Hakimi.

This according to Italian broadcaster SportItalia, who report that the Nerazzurri are not currently ready to move for the 27-year-old due to not being able to accommodate him in their transfer budget.

A right-sided player to replace Hakimi is thought to be a major item on Inter’s transfer agenda, with Lazzari the preferred target of Inter manager Simone Inzaghi.

The head coach has a good relationship with the 27-year-old, having spent two seasons together at Lazio, and the player understands the coach’s ideas and methods and would not take long to adjust.

However, Inter are also looking to meet financial objectives in the summer and have strict budgetary restrictions on transfer spending, with no high-value arrivals expected.

It remains to be seen whether Inter are able to find a way to make the Biancocelesti an acceptable offer for Lazzari, but for now it is understood that the club are not able to afford the player.
