Inter were offered the chance to sign Borussia Monchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter in the summer on a free transfer, but they declined the possibility.
This according to transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla, who reported in his column in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport that the Nerazzurri were not ultimately interested in signing the German.
Ginter’s current deal with Gladbach is set to expire at the end of the season, and he has publicly announced that he has no intention of extending, so he will be available on a free transfer.
The Nerazzurri had been reported as being linked with a possible move for the 28-year-old once it became clear that he could be signed without a transfer fee.
However, according to Pedulla, Ginter was in fact proposed to the Nerazzurri, but in the end they did not respond to the possibility as they do not see him as a target.
