Out-of-contract Udinese striker Fernando Llorente has proposed himself to Inter on a free transfer.
This according to Italian news outlet Tuttoudinese.it, who report that the 36-year-old has offered himself to the Nerazzurri as a free agent and could be brought in as the fifth striker to fill out the attacking rotation at the club.
After the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea and the subsequent arrivals of Edin Dzeko and Joaquin Correa, the Nerazzurri are not lacking in forward options especially if Martin Satriano is to be kept as part of the first team.
However, given the fitness issues of Alexis Sanchez and Satriano’s relative lack of experience, as well as the lack of a stylistically similar direct backup for Dzeko, Llorente could arrive to complete their summer business.
The Spaniard, who has played for the likes of Athletic Bilbao, Juventus, Sevilla, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Napoli prior to joining Udinese, including winning the Scudetto with the Bianconeri, could come in as a reliable short-term option.
