With Romelu Lukaku on the verge of completing a €115 million move to Chelsea, Inter will use the funds to sign two new strikers and a wide player.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, no more than €50m of the fee brought in by Lukaku’s departure will be made available to strengthen the squad and coach Simone Inzaghi is in total agreement with directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio over how to spend it.

The plan is to use the funds to secure two strikers to complement Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez, easing the burden on the pair and given Inzaghi a greater range of attacking options.

Once two names have been secured, the next priority is to find a replacement for right wing-back Achraf Hakimi, and whilst Inter have been linked with both Nahitan Nandez of Cagliari and PSV Eindhoven’s Denzel Dumfries, it is thought that they will only move for one.

Netherlands international Dumfries is currently the more likely option and is a specialist wing-back, unlike Nandez, but any move depends on the willingness and demands of PSV and Cagliari respectively.

On the other flank, Inzaghi is satisfied with Ivan Perisic and Federico Dimarco so there will be no new additions.
