Inter are still looking for a player with the profile of a more typical centre-forward, and will prioritize a player like Duvan Zapata’s arrival over that of a different kind of attacker.

This is explained by Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin in his column for, where he outlines the priority of the Nerazzurri to add a traditional Number Nine to their ranks before the transfer window shuts.

Insigne has been linked with Inter in recent days, with the Napoli captain out of contract next summer and renewal talks with his current club stalled.

However, as Biasin states, the Nerazzurri are still looking for a player who can play as an out-and-out centre-forward rather than more of a winger such as Insigne.

The traits that are being looked for are physical strength and goalscoring qualities in the penalty areas, while the Napoli man has a profile based more around dribbling and technical ability.

“The priority remains Zapata,” he writes, “but Atalanta will only let their striker leave if they find a replacement, which they currently do not have. In short, a complex affair.”

He continues on the situation by writing that “[Lazio striker Joaquin] Correa is there as an alternative but, to be clear, not the only alternative (inquiries for Wout Weghorst, Dutch forward from Wolfsburg. Last year he scored 20 goals in the Bundesliga, and would cost €20 million).”

Of Inisigne in particular, Biasin writes that “No, at the moment Inter are looking for a ‘real’ first striker.”
