Inter are already thinking about re-building their midfield during the summer transfer window in view of next season.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that Sassuolo’s Davide Frattesi and Lecce’s Morten Hjulmand are among the Nerazzurri’s main targets to reinforce in central areas.
Frattesi is a player who the Nerazzurri have been linked with for some time, with the 22-year-old’s performances for the Neroverdi this campaign marking him out as someone who can play a big role for the future.
With the likes of Matias Vecino and Arturo Vidal set to depart at the end of the season, the Sassuolo midfielder looks to be the man who Inter will try to sign to build around.
Meanwhile, the absence of Marcelo Brozovic in yesterday evening’s 1-1 Serie A draw with Torino and the team’s poor performance without him underlined how important it could be to have a reliable deputy for the 29-year-old.
To this end, Inter’s interest in Morten Hjulmand is growing, with the club observing the young Dane’s importance to Lecce’s promotion push in Serie A and viewing him as an encouraging prospect who could back up Brozovic.
