If Inter were to sign Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach either in January or next summer, then it would mean that one of Joaquin Correa or Romelu Lukaku would be out the door next summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri would consider the 25-year-old a replacement for one of Correa or Lukaku.

Correa’s situation at Inter is not as secure as it had seemed last summer, as fitness issues and erratic form have continued to limit his contribution at the Nerazzurri.

Meanwhile, Lukaku is hardly guaranteed to remain at the club past the end of his current one-season loan.

The Belgian’s injury issues have meant that Inter are not certain to decide to extend his loan, whilst Chelsea could also decide to recall him to try and sell him permanently next summer.

For these reasons, the Nerazzurri are looking at Thuram as a possible signing to strengthen the forward areas if either Lukaku and Correa will not stay past next summer, but not if both of the pair remain.
