Inter Want Arsenal & USA Star Balogun

The Gunners are expected to sell Balogun this summer now that his value has risen. The Nerazzurri are keen, although they could have to go head-to-head with city rivals AC Milan.
Tigre & Italy Breakout Star Retegui Also On Nerazzurri Radar
Another player persistently linked with Inter for a summer transfer is Italy striker Mateo Retegui.
The 23-year-old has been in blazing form in the Argentine top flight with Tigre. This earned Retegui his first call-up for Italy in March, and he’s also proven to be a real sensation for the Azzurri.
Bundesliga team Eintracht Frankfurt are also keen on Mateo Retegui, but the Nerazzurri reportedly lead the way for his signature.
