Inter will not be able to move for Atalanta defender Giorgio Scalvini as a replacement for Milan Skriniar, as the 19-year-old would be out of their price range, and Lille’s Tiago Djalo is a more affordable option.

This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInter1908, who reported this afternoon that La Dea would value Scalvini at no less than €40 million amid interest from the likes of Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

Scalvini is certainly a player on Inter’s radar, and the young Atalanta defender has been one of the names linked with the Nerazzurri as a defensive reinforcement now that it looks clear that Milan Skriniar will leave the club.

However, the Nerazzurri are far from the only club keen on the 19-year-old.

European heavyweights Man City and Bayern are both big fans of Scalvini, and Atalanta are hoping that a bidding war between top clubs drives up the price tag for the player, who they value at a minimum of €40 million.

Such a fee would be well beyond what Inter could afford, and so they are looking at Lille defender Djalo as an attainable target to replace Skriniar.
