Inter could move for a young left-sided wingback like Genoa’s Andrea Cambiaso even in the event that Ivan Perisic renews his contract, and then send him out on loan to gain experience.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are thinking about preparing for the future on the left side of the team.
The Nerazzurri have already signed Robin Gosens during the January transfer window to strengthen on the left at any rate, while they are waiting to see whether Perisic accepts a contract extension offer past the end of next month.
Should Perisic depart then a replacement will be sought, with young Italian prospects such as Cambiaso and Empoli’s Fabiano Parisi among the players who have been linked.
However, even in the event that Perisic stays on, the club could still target a player such as Cambiaso as the Croat’s long-term successor, and then send him out on loan.
