Inter are ready to use the funds brought in by the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea to sanction the signing of both Duvan Zapata and Edin Dzeko.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, Lukaku’s impending departure to the Premier League has prompted the Nerazzurri to consider bringing in two replacement strikers and they have settled on their options.

Roma veteran Dzeko is likely to be the easiest move to complete, with the 35-year-old only having a year left on his deal at the Stadio Olimpico and ready to accept a two-year deal worth €4.5 million per season at Inter.

The former Manchester City striker will then be complemented by Atalanta’s Colombian international Zapata, who has been considered by Inter as the most similar player to Lukaku in terms of style that is currently available.

However, a deal for the 30-year-old could prove difficult for Inter, with Atalanta demanding €40-50m for Zapata and being ready to hold out for the best price possible, as witnessed with their sale of Cristian Romero to Tottenham Hotspur last week.

Inter had also considered Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic instead of Zapata, but the Serb is beyond their financial means.

Alternatively, the Nerazzurri may have greater joy in a move for Lazio’s Joaquin Correa, with the Aquile softening their stance and allowing their asking price to drop.

Meanwhile, a move for Sassuolo’s Giacomo Raspadori is thought to be unlikely until next summer, but Inter may attempt to land teammate Gianluca Scamacca in exchange for midfielder Lucien Agoume.
