Inter have shifted gears on their strategy for the summer transfer window, and are ready to make signings before a big name sale takes place.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are now ready to seize opportunities in the market early.

Initially, once it was determined that a major sale was necessary to meet financial targets, the club’s strategy was to get the sale out of the way before making moves for targets.

This was so that they could be assured on which player they were replacing and how much had been brought in to the club’s coffers.

However, with the opportunity to sign Romelu Lukaku back from Chelsea looking more and more concrete, as well as the signings of Paulo Dybala and Henrikh Mkhitaryan looking to be close, the club’s thinking is changing.

Inter are willing to let these early opportunities dictate how the rest of the window goes for them, and could base their decision on the necessary big name sale on the signings they make in the coming weeks.
