Inter are unlikely to sign a defender from a team in Serie A to replace Milan Skriniar in the event that the Slovakian departs for Paris Saint-Germain before the January transfer window.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri are more keen on Lille’s Tiago Djalo and Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof than they would be on any realistic option from within the Italian top flight.

Inter are still bracing for the possibility that PSG will come in with a large enough offer for Skriniar that they decide to cash in on the 27-year-old former Sampdoria defender.

In this event, there are targets lined up to very quickly take the place of the Slovakian before the January transfer window slams shut tomorrow.

According to the Corriere della Sera, Udinese’s Rodrigo Becao is one, and the likeliest name to arrive from within Serie A, but he is a player who Inter are still relatively lukewarm on.

Rather, the newspaper report, the Nerazzurri would want to snap up Djalo or Lindelof.
