Inter are considering two players from the Bundesliga as they continue their search for a striker this summer, with Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram having emerged as targets.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the pair in Germany are both considered viable targets by the Nerazzurri.
Weghorst would arrive as a physically strong centre-forward whose qualities are suited to leading the line and finishing in the penalty area, and he has proposed to the Nerazzurri by intermediaries, carrying a likely fee no higher than €20 million.
Meanwhile, Thuram has been offered to the club by his agent Mino Raiola, although it remains to be seen if Gladbach could be convinced on a deal given his significance to them.
The 24-year-old has a profile different than Weghorst, having played as a winger for much of his career and acting more as a runner than a penalty area specialist, and it remains to be seen how the club consider him as a fit into Simone Inzaghi’s system.
