Manuel Lazzari will not join Inter as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi in the summer, according to reports.

This according to Italian broadcaster SportItalia, who claimed this evening that the Nerazzurri will instead bring in one of their other targets for the position.

With Hakimi’s departure the club will look to sign a right-sided player to replace the Moroccan, and Lazzari had been among the names linked to the club, with a reunion with Simone Inzaghi from Lazio possibly on the cards.

However, it is reported that the club will likely not be able to complete a deal for the 27-year-old, and will instead pursue other targets.

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and PSV’s Denzel Dumfries are thought to be the top targets for the Nerazzurri on the right side, although it remains to be seen if a deal for either will be able to be done.

Meanwhile, the club have made new contacts for Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi, also thought to be a target to replace Hakimi.

Lastly, it is reported that Chelsea will not consider giving the Nerazzurri a discount on Davide Zappacosta, who is thought to be in consideration by the club as a low-cost option to replace Bellerin.
