Inter could move to sign Lazio defender Felipe Luiz on a free transfer next summer, but would not consider him as a regular starter.
This according to Sky Sport Italia transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla, who reported on air that the Nerazzurri are not considering the 24-year-old as an option to strengthen their startling eleven or replace any first-choice defenders.
Luiz’s current deal is set to run out at the end of June, and he could leave on a free transfer during the summer should he not agree on an extension with the Biancocelesti.
Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi worked with Luiz for several seasons while he was in charge of Lazio, and could appreciate a reunion with the defender.
The Nerazzurri are monitoring the Brazilian’s situation with a view to a potential free transfer in June, but they would not make his signing a priority to strengthen their starting eleven or in the event that a starting defender departs from the club.
