In case André Onana were to leave the club, Inter Milan could replace him with Sampdoria’s Emil Audero who’s also a transfer target for the likes of Napoli and Lazio.
The Nerazzurri might have to sell their star goalkeeper to fund their summer transfer campaign. The Cameroonian has major suitors in the Premier League.
However, this would leave the goalkeeping department depleted. Club captain Samir Handanovic is also leaving the club following a lengthy stint at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.
So according to Sky Sport via FcInter1908, the Beneamata could be eyeing a move for Audero who would be eager to escape Sampdoria following their relegation to Serie B.
The 26-year-old started his career at Juventus, rising through the club’s youth ranks. But due to strong competition, he had to leave Turin in 2018.
He has been plying his trade at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium ever since, establishing himself as a reliable shot-stopper.
The source claims that the Blucerchiati are requesting 10 million euros to part ways with the Italian custodian.
However, Inter Milan aren’t alone in the race for Audero, as Lazio, Napoli and Bologna are all reportedly interested in his services.
Last season, he made 25 appearances in Serie A in what was a calamitous campaign for his club. He conceded 39 goals in the process, while collecting four clean sheets.
While this source mentions the Sampdoria goalkeeper as a potential replacement for Onana, another report suggests alternative profiles, namely Bayern Munich veteran Yann Sommer and young Valencia shot-stopper Giorgi Mamardashvili.
