Inter have communicated to Paulo Dybala and his representatives that they will get back to work on signing the Argentine on a free transfer once space is made in the squad through the departure of other attackers.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri’s pursuit of Dybala is on standby for now but that they have made clear to his representatives that they fully intend to complete a signing when they are able.

The whirlwind return of Romelu Lukaku has been the focus at Inter over the past few days, and the Belgian now looks very close to making the move back to the Nerazzurri on loan from Chelsea.

This means that there are quite a few forwards at Inter, and while Alexis Sanchez is all but certain to leave, another forward would have to follow him out the door for Dybala to be signed, with Edin Dzeko the likeliest candidate for an exit.

The Nerazzurri have given the player assurances that this is only a matter of time, however, and that they will proceed with his signing in due time.
