Inter are narrowing down their list of possible attacking arrivals, with Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata, Torino’s Andrea Belotti, and Lazio’s Joaquin Correa all possible targets before the end of the transfer window.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who report that the trio are the likeliest signings to come in and replace Romelu Lukaku, and that the Nerazzurri have yet to make their choice between them.
Zapata is considered the ideal profile to replace Lukaku having the most similar characteristics to the Belgian, but he would be the most difficult to agree a deal for.
The Colombian would be the most expensive striker that the Nerazzurri are monitoring, valued by his current club at €40 million, and La Dei would not want to let him go without first securing a replacement, with Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham their preferred option.
Meanwhile, Belotti is a target for both Atalanta, as a possible Zapata replacement should he be sold, and Inter, who consider him to be a feasible option.
Lastly, Correa is an option liked by head coach Simone Inzaghi, who would like a reunion with the Argentine with whom he spent three seasons while the pair were at Lazio together, enjoying a successful working relationship.
The 26-year-old wants a move away this summer, and the Biancocelesti would likely be amenable to his sale with the need for transfer income pressing so that they can complete other business.
