Inter do not consider recently departed Napoli forward Dries Mertens to be a target in attack as they are aiming to build their attack around players already at the club.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi is confident about making Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez the starting pair and then Edin Dzeko and Joaquin Correa the backups.

With Mertens’s departure from Napoli at the end of his contract now confirmed, the Belgian could be seen as an experienced option in attack for a number of clubs, and the Nerazzurri have been among the teams rumoured to be interested.

Inter are pushing to offload Alexis Sanchez during the summer transfer window and could turn to Mertens to add one more option to their attack.

However, Inzaghi and the club do not see a need for anything more than they already have in attack even after Sanchez leaves, as the coach is ready to work with a well-defined pair of starters and is happy with Dzeko and Correa as depth options.
