Inter could try to sign both Empoli’s Asllani and Salernitana’s Ederson this summer, but only if they are to bring in cash from player sales.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that both young midfielders could be part of the Nerazzurri’s planned squad rebuild, but that it would take an ambitious economic effort.
Asllani remains the Nerazzurri’s top target to back up Marcelo Brozovic for next season, whilst Ederson could also be considered for that role but also could be eyed up to replace the midfielders who are leaving the club.
The likes of Arturo Vidal and Matias Vecino will depart during the window, whilst Stefano Sensi is heavily linked with an exit and Roberto Gagliardini could also be on his way.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to be signed to bolster the midfield, but Ederson would be another target for this purpose.
With Monza targeting all of Sensi, Lorenzo Pirola, and Andrea Pinamonti the Nerazzurri could get a big cash influx from the newly-promoted side, whilst they could also offer player-plus-cash offers for both Asllani and Ederson that would make the deals more feasible.
Young striker Sebastiano Esposito is of interest to both Empoli and Salernitana, whilst Martin Satriano and Andrei Radu are among the players who could be offered to Empoli as part of a deal for Asllani.
