Inter President Steven Zhang’s agenda whilst in Milan will involve finalizing work on key contract extensions, while he will also discuss the signing of a left-sided player with the directors.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the President will work on the strategy for a backup and replacement to Ivan Perisic as well as attend to important renewals.

The priority contract situation at the club remains that of Marcelo Brozovic, whose current deal expires at the end of June.

The club have gotten close to agreeing a new deal with the 29-year-old, and Zhang will hope that he can see further progress on securing the midfielder’s future.

Meanwhile, Ivan Perisic’s deal also runs out at the end of June, although it remains to be seen if an agreement can be found with him on an extension given the distance between his request of a three-year deal worth €6 million net per season and the club’s offer of €3.5 million net per season plus add-ons for two years.

Samir Handanovic’s current contract also runs out in the summer, and Zhang will attend to this situation, along with those of defenders Milan Skriniar and Stefan de Vrij who are each under contract until the end of June 2023.

A left-sided player to back up Perisic is a further priority, and the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini are priority targets who could also replace the Croat in the long term.

Both are being monitored with a view to a move either this month in the summer, though the likes of Everton’s Lucas Digne and PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa could be considered later in the window.
