Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata is the top choice of Inter CEO Beppe Marotta to be the next major attacking arrival at the Giuseppe Meazza this summer.
This according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.com, who report that the 30-year-old is being kept as the priority option by Marotta and Sporting Director Piero Ausilio, though agreeing a deal for him with his current club could prove difficult.
The Nerazzurri are some way in their search for attacking reinforcements following the departure of Romelu Lukaku, having already brought in Edin Dzeko, and Zapata remains a major name on their lists for a second signing.
Marotta sees him as having the right profile to take over from Lukaku, and the club have an agreement in principle for personal terms with the player, with the player willing to accept an offer worth a net of €30 million per season.
The CEO likes the player and is still actively working to bring him in, though he is aware that the operation could still take some time.
