Inter have made contact with the agent of Roma wing-back Alessandro Florenzi over the possibility of a transfer for the 30-year-old as a replacement for the departed Achraf Hakimi.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, who report that the Nerazzurri are hoping to sign the player on loan with an option to buy, but the Giallorossi prefer a sale on a permanent basis or a loan with a purchase obligation.

With Hakimi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain confirmed this week, the Nerazzurri have accelerated their search for the Moroccan, and Florenzi is seen as a feasible option and is liked by the club.

The Italian returns to the Italian capital this summer after loans with Valencia and PSG over the past season and a half, and it is thought that the Giallorossi would be open to selling him.

Earlier today, Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Sporting Director Piero Ausilio made contact with the 30-year-old’s agent Alessandro Lucci earlier today in the hopes of getting closer to a deal for the player.
