Inter still consider PSV’s Denzel Dumfries and Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta to be targets on the right, but they could struggle to convince the players’ current clubs to agree deals.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who explain that neither PSV nor Chelsea have any intention of letting the players go on loan with a purchase option, the only formula that the Nerazzurri could currently accommodate.
A number of names have come up in the Nerazzurri’s search for a right-sided player with the right profile to replace Achraf Hakimi after the Moroccan’s sale to Paris Saint-Germain, with Dumfries being among the priority options.
The 25-year-old’s current club PSV are willing to allow him to depart this summer, but would only be willing to sell him on a permanent basis, or let him go on loan with a mandatory purchase option.
Zappacosta, meanwhile, is another player who the Nerazzurri have been tracking in the position, but once again his current club are only interested in a permanent sale or loan with an obligation to buy.
The Nerazzurri are only able to make deals for players if they are on a formula of a loan with a purchase option this summer due to financial reasons, and could miss out on both major targets for this reason.
