Inter are set to turn their attention to Atalanta defender Giorgio Scalvini as they seek a replacement for Milan Skriniar next season.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Corriere dello Sport, the Nerazzurri are bracing themselves for the departure of Skriniar on a free transfer, with the Slovakia international expected to join Paris Saint-Germain, but have already begun sounding out replacements.

The top priority is Scalvini, but it is warned that any deal for the 19-year-old is expected to be complicated, particularly as Atalanta value him at €40 million.

Inter hope to find room in their budget for Scalvini due to the difference in costs of wages, with the Atalanta player due to receive significantly less than the €6m offered to Skriniar.

In addition, the cost of the transfer could be brought down by sending youth players Giovanni Fabbian and Samuele Mulattieri to Atalanta in exchange.

The former is currently on loan at Reggina, whilst the latter is spending the season with Frosinone, and both are appreciated by Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

Alternatively, Inter will look to Perr Schuurs of Torino, who is currently valued at €25m, whilst they would face competition from Napoli and Everton for Udinese’s Rodrigo Becao.

Inter are also considering Tiago Djalo of Lille, with the former AC Milan defender set to cost €20m.
