Inter have temporarily put their pursuit of Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca on standby in order to focus completely on getting results on the pitch.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri want no distractions from the decisive weeks of the campaign but that they are still confident that they can successfully sign the 23-year-old.
The Nerazzurri have been in talks for Scamacca for some time without reaching a decisive breakthrough, but they feel that the positive relations between CEO Beppe Marotta and his Sassuolo counterpart Giovanni Carnevali will make things simple.
The Neroverdi value the striker at around €40 million, a significant investment for the Nerazzurri, but their aim is to work out a deal either on a paid loan with a purchase obligation or make a player-plus-cash offer.
There is still work to be done on this front, but given that the talks so far have been positive, the player prefers a move to the Nerazzurri, and he has already rejected offers from Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, and Newcastle United, they feel that there is no rush.
For now, Inter want the focus to exclusively be on getting vital results in the run-in of the season, with trophies in Serie A and the Coppa Italia in the balance.
