Inter are set to change their approach to transfers and will focus on securing young Italian talent, with Atalanta defender Giorgio Scalvini and Fabiano Parisi of Empoli potential incomings.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, CEO Beppe Marotta has been tasked with rejuvenating the Nerazzurri squad at a lower cost, following the arrivals of young players Kristjan Asllani and Raoul Bellanova last summer.
High on the list of targets is Scalvini, with Inter amongst a number of teams chasing the 18-year-old defender, with regular first team experience in Serie A already.
In addition to centre-back Parisi, Inter are also keen on his midfield teammate Tommaso Baldanzi and Hellas Verona midfielder Filippo Terraciano.Fab
Whilst Atalanta would demand €40 million for Scalvini, and this could be offset by the sale of Denzel Dumfries to bring €60m, the other three players may be more attainable.
Indeed, it is suggested that a combination of loans with options to buy, and player exchanges, could help Inter secure the trio.
Parisi has been on Inter’s radar for some time and whilst Empoli value him at €25m, Inter could bring this cost down by offering striker Martin Satriano in exchange.
Meanwhile, Verona may request one of the two Carboni brothers currently on Inter’s books, with fullback Franco more likely to be offered due to coach Simone Inzaghi’s decision to retain midfielder Valentin.
