Inter are continuing to look for a left-sided player to back up Ivan Perisic to arrive during the January transfer window.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri have made the arrival of a deputy for the 32-year-old a key part of their transfer strategy this month.
Perisic has been a dependable starter in the left wing-back position this campaign, but his only real backup in the squad appears to be Federico Dimarco.
Dimarco is seen as more of an option for the backline, while Aleksandar Kolarov has barely featured and looks set to leave the club or even retire from football this month.
The Nerazzurri have been targeting Everton’s Lucas Digne on loan, but he looks set to make the switch to Aston Villa instead so a move for the Frenchman looks out of the question.
Among the possible names that the club are now considering are Empoli’s Fabiano Parisi, Borussia Monchengladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini, and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic, although any of these would only be on loan.
