Inter are waiting on more clarity regarding the fitness of Alexis Sanchez before they make a choice on which forward to sign this summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the club will base their decision on whether they ultimately expect the Chilean to be available for much of the season.
Sanchez is still recovering from a calf injury which has been a problem for him for much of the summer, having undergone tests in Barcelona, and yesterday the Chilean FA announced that he will not be in the squad for his country’s World Cup qualifiers during the international break.
The Nerazzurri are anxious about his situation and whether or not this means that he could be ruled out for a significant portion of the season.
Accordingly, as the club look to ramp up their search for an attacking reinforcement before the transfer window closes, they are considering whether the player will have the right tactical profile to complete the options should Sanchez be largely unavailable.
At the moment, the likes of Joaquin Correa, Duvan Zapata, and Marcus Thuram are considered to be the major options by the club, but which of the trio is ultimately settled on could be contingent on Sanchez’s fitness.
