Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is keen to push for Paris Saint-Germain to make an offer for defender Milan Skriniar, and could turn to Lyon’s Castello Lukeba as a replacement.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Repubblica, Skriniar has informed Inter of his decision to leave the club and join PSG when his contract expires in June, rather than commit to new terms.

With the French champions ready to offer him €10 million per season, in comparison to the €6.5m proposed by Inter, the Slovakia international appears set for a move to Ligue 1 next season.

However, Marotta is hoping to raise funds from the sale of Skriniar this month rather than lose him for free in the summer, and is looking to take advantage of PSG’s urgent need for a centre-back by securing a sale in January.

It would require the Nerazzurri to land a replacement though, and finances are tight in their search for a new defender.

The preferred target is Atalanta teenager Giorgio Scalvini, but Inter are expecting to be priced out of a move for him.

Instead, they may look to Lukeba, with the 20-year-old considered a more affordable option.
