Inter are planning to sign Cagliari wingback Raoul Bellanova to strengthen the right side of their team and then move Matteo Darmian over to the left to back up Robin Gosens for next season.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 22-year-old is the likeliest candidate to replace Ivan Perisic in the team for next season.

Inter are still considering the possibility of a direct positional replacement for Perisic following the 33-year-old’s move to Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer, but they are put off by Udinese’s €25 million valuation of Destiny Udogie.

Meanwhile, Genoa have put an asking price of €10 million on Andrea Cambiaso, which the Nerazzurri consider too high for a player with his recent injury history, whilst Federico Bernardeschi would arrive on considerably higher wages than any other options if signed on a free transfer.

For this reason, the Nerazzurri feel that Bellanova would be the most financially feasible candidate to replace Perisic, not directly but by reinforcing the right flank behind Denzel Dumfries, and allowing Darmian to be used as a backup to Gosens.

Federico Dimarco could also still be used as a left-wingback even though the 24-year-old was largely moved into a position in the back three last season.
