Inter could include striker Martin Satriano as part of an offer to Empoli to sign goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario during the summer transfer window.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 22-year-old Uruguayan international, who is currently on loan with Empoli, could be part of the Nerazzurri’s strategy to land Vicatio.
Inter could sell Andre Onana this summer, with the Cameroonian one of the main names linked to a possible sale in the event that the Nerazzurri were to miss out on qualification for the Champions League.
Chelsea are hovering and reportedly set for talks with Inter regarding Onana, and if the 27-year-old were to be on his way then the Nerazzurri would have to immediately set out to sign a direct replacement.
In this sense, Tuttosport reports, Vicario would very much be the main name who Inter would be interested in bringing in as a like-for-like replacement for the Cameroonian.
The 26-year-old has put in an impressive string of performances for Empoli since the Tuscans were promoted to Serie A for the start of the 2021-22 season, as he has been vital to keeping them in a solidly midtable position under both coaches Aurelio Andreazzoli and Paolo Zanetti.
Moreover, Vicario’s style of play is seen as being potentially sutiable for a top club.
The Nerazzurri have made the 26-year-old their main target to replace Onana in the event that they feel that they cannot turn down an offer for the current goalkeeper, and they have a card to play in order to secure his signature.
Satriano is currently on loan with Empoli, and whilst the young Uruguayan has struggled for goals this season he has continued to feature regularly.
Inter are hoping that by offering the Tuscans a permanent deal for Satriano in addition to a cash fee, they could get a deal done to sign Vicario.
