Inter’s transfer budget could increase this January transfer window should midfielder Matias Vecino leave the club.
This according to Italian journalist Niccolo Ceccarini in his editorial for TuttoMercatoWeb, who reports that the Nerazzurri could be able to increase their modest transfer budget should the Uruguyan be on his way.
Inter are not likely to make significant investments in January, though they could look to reinforce the squad with the attack being a particular area which could see a new arrival.
One of the main factors which will determined whether or not Inter bring plays in during the January transfer window will be whether any players currently in the squad move on.
Vecino is one of the likeliest players to be on his way, with the 30-year-old out of contract at the end of June 2022 and not a regular feature in the team, and his exit could open the door to a new arrival or two.
“Inter are always looking at possible opportunities in attack for January,” Ceccarini writes. “The budget is not a lot and for this reason Marotta and Ausilio will have to find a solution that can make ends meet.”
He goes on that “It must be kept in mind that Vecino could also leave, and that his sale would increase the budget a bit.”
“Things are increasingly becoming clearer at Sassuolo where the likes of Scamacca and Raspadori remain as options,” he concludes, :even if their valuation is still very high.”
“Attention should also be paid to Muriel, who could be on his way with a significant offer,” he adds.
