Inter Milan Still In Talks With Atalanta For Merih Demiral, Italian Media Report
Contacts between Inter and Atalanta are ongoing regarding a possible move for Merih Demiral, who could join the Nerazzurri this summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 25-year-old is seen as an ideal replacement for Milan Skriniar by Inter, and is valued at around €20 million by Atalanta.
Demiral had been Inter’s top target in January for the contingency that Skriniar would have already left to join Paris Saint-Germain before the end of the window.
In the end, Skriniar stayed put, but the Nerazzurri will still have to replace the Slovakian this summer when his contract expires.
According to the Gazzetta, there have been continued talks with Atalanta regarding Demiral, who the Nerazzurri still see as a strong candidate to replace Skirniar.
La Dea would want around €20 million for the Turkish international, and the negotiations could come down to whether or not the two clubs can agree upon the formula of an initial loan deal.
