Inter still consider Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic a target this summer, with CEO Beppe Marotta remaining attentive to the possibility of signing him.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri could yet move for the Serb despite formidable competition from other clubs with Atletico Madrid in particular pushing for him.
La Viola want to keep hold of Vlahovic for next season and will offer him a new contract, with owner Rocco Commisso expected to fly to Florence today to try and push forward renewal talks.
So far the Tuscan club have not been able to tie down the 21-year-old’s future, with their offer of a wage increase to €3.5 million net per season possibly sufficient but the player’s agent not wanting a high release clause inserted.
Meanwhile, should La Viola not be able to secure Vlahovic’s future, there is no shortage of suitors, with Tottenham Hotspur already having had a €70 million offer rejected, and Atletico Madrid strongly interested in his signature having already made an offer for €50 million which could rise considerably higher with add-ons.
The Nerazzurri will know that with Fiorentina going all-in to try and convince Vlahovic to stay and sign a new deal, and several top European clubs equally determined to sign him, he would be a difficult target, but Marotta is still hopeful of bringing him in.
