Inter are chasing Cagliari’s Nahitan Nandez, and would be willing to include the likes of Lucien Agoume and Radja Nainggolan in a deal for the Uruguayan.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that Nandez is seen as a target to replace the departed Achraf Hakimi on the right, and the Nerazzurri believe that they could work out an arrangement for his signing with the Rossoblue by including players going the other way.

Inter and Cagliari have been in talks on a number of deals during this transfer window already, with a deal to take Nainggolan to the Sardinian club on a permanent basis thought to have been in negotiations for a number of weeks.

The size of the Belgian’s salary is a major sticking point in the deal, being both the principal reason that the Nerazzurri wish to offload him, and difficult for the Rossoblu to accommodate him financially.

Should the Nerazzurri make an effort to get the Nainggolan deal over the line financially, they could lower the asking price of reported target Nandez from Cagliari, from his release clause of €36 million to €30 million.

This would make a deal for Nandez more feasible for the Nerazzurri, although they would still have to work out the right formula, either taking him on loan initially with an option to buy outright, or paying the fee for him in instalments.

Another possibility to bring the fee down for Nandez would be to include Inter midfielder Lucien Agoume in the deal, with the Frenchman thought to be admired by Cagliari head coach Leonardo Semplici.

Should Nandez arrive he would be thought of as a direct replacement for Hakimi after the Moroccan’s departure for Paris Saint-Germain, with Nandez’s transformation from a central midfielder to a right-sided wing-back last season having impressed the Nerazzurri.
