Inter have made contact with the entourage of Ajax striker Sebastien Haller about a possible summer move.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Ivorian is a significant transfer target for the Nerazzurri in attack and that they are working towards a possible move.
Inter Sporting Director Piero Ausilio has long been an admirer of Haller’s, and that interest has never really gone away even as the Nerazzurri have pursued other targets in attack.
Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca remains a major target for the Nerazzurri in attack but there is no guarantee that he will be signed, whilst a return for Romelu Lukaku would be very complicated, and Lille’s Jonathan David would come at a very high fee.
Moreover, there is always the possibility that Inter could sign two strikers in the summer, with Felipe Caicedo certain to depart, and Alexis Sanchez also possibly on the way out.
Moreover, while there are no plans to sell Lautaro Martinez, if a huge offer were to come along the club could consider letting the Argentine leave, in which case they would be much likelier to move for two top targets at striker.
For this reason, the club are keeping tabs on Haller on their list of attacking targets, while the 27-year-old would reportedly be very amenable to a move to Serie A and to Inter based on the contacts with his representatives.
Haller currently earns a salary of €3 million net per season with the Dutch champions, whilst he is valued at around €35 million.
