Inter are considering offering Belgian defender Zinho Vanheusden to Sassuolo in exchange for Giacomo Raspadori, according to reports.

This from today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the 21-year-old Raspadori remains a top target for the Nerazzurri and the club are exploring ways to acquire him.

Inter’s interest in Raspadori is widely reported, with the player thought to be the club’s top target to replace Lautaro Martinez should the Argentine depart.

However, it is also thought that Inter could look to bring the 21-year-old in even in the event that Martinez is still at the club, although this could be difficult due to budgetary reasons.

Contacts between the two clubs over the player are ongoing, and Inter have proposed bringing the player in next summer so that the player could spend another season at Sassuolo in order to convince the Neroverdi, as well as having offered players going the other way.

The Neroverdi are thought to be interested in a number of Inter Primavera attackers, and multiple names have been brought up in discussion, but now Belgian defender Zinho Vanheusden has joined the list.

Vanheusden returns to Inter from Standard Liege after the Nerazzurri exercised a buyback clause in the term’s of the player’s original sale, and it is thought that Inter are considering the player’s sale, with a loan back to Standard among the possibilities.

With Sassuolo having lost key central defender Marlon to Shakhtar Donetsk, they are looking to bring in reinforcements, and could be tempted by the inclusion of the 21-year-old Vanheusden in an offer to come to an agreement with the Nerazzurri for Raspadori.
