Inter are considering a move for Lille midfielder Xeka this summer on a free transfer.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the 27-year-old is among the players who the Nerazzurri are considering to reinforce their midfield ahead of next season.
The Nerazzurri are likely to revamp their midfield over the summer, with the likes of Arturo Vidal and Matias Vecino all but certain to leave and Roberto Gagliardini and Stefano Sensi also potential sales.
The club are formulating their list of targets to replace these players, and they are among the clubs ready to move for Ligue 1 winner Xeka whose contract with Lille is expiring at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Roma midfielder Jordan Veretout is also a target, although the Frenchman would command a fee and significant wage demands, and Sassuolo’s Davide Frattesi remains at the top of the club’s list.
Among the other midfield targets at Inter named by Tuttosport are Lecce’s Morten Hjulmand, Empoli’s Kristjan Asllani, Sampdoria’s Morten Thorsby, and potentially bringing Lucien Agoume back into the first team when he returns from loan at Brest.
