Inter have already begun the search for new goalkeepers to replace current duo Samir Handanovic and Andre Onana, with attention turned to Yann Sommer of Borussia Monchengladbach.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, Nerazzurri directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio have turned their attention to the goalkeeping position amidst concerns over the futures of Handanovic and Onana.
Veteran Handanovic has fallen down the pecking order this season, and despite being club captain, the Slovenian is thought to be considering his future at the club as he approaches his 39th birthday.
The former Udinese shotstopper is out of contract in June and is yet to make a decision on whether he wishes to remain with the club as a back-up, or move on at this late stage of his career.
Meanwhile, Onana’s future is also up for discussion despite the Cameroonian only arriving in the summer, with Inter refusing to rule out a sale should they receive a tempting offer for him.
Having joined on a free transfer from Ajax, any sale would see Inter secure considerable profit and the Nerazzurri are ready to evaluate interesting proposals for him.
Should either, or indeed both, of the goalkeepers depart, Marotta and Ausilio will target Gladbach’s 34-year-old Sommer, or return to Fenerbahce’s Altay Bayindir.
The 24-year-old was on Inter’s radar in 2021 and the Nerazzurri have monitored him since then.
