Cagliari defender Raoul Bellanova is the first name on Inter’s list of players that could replace Ivan Perisic after he left the club this week, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.

As has been reported by Sky Sport today, via FCInternews, the Italian defender is seen as the Nerazzurri’s first choice to complete the set of fullbacks at the squad that currently stands at three, Robin Gosens, Matteo Darmian and Denzel Dumfries.

An attempt to begin negotiations with Cagliari will begin in the coming days and given they have been relegated from Serie A, they will not be blessed with bargaining power.

Another option in that area though is Udinese left-back Destiny Udogie who has had a wonderful season under Gabriele Cioffi.

The figures requested by the Friulians are considered too high at the moment and Raoul Bellanova is the preferred option which will be explored very soon.
