Inter Milan and AC Milan are both thinking about making a move to sign Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that both the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri have signalled their interest in signing the 21-year-old Serbian international, who is valued at around €20 million.

Both of Inter and Milan are looking to make midfield reinforcements this summer.

In the Nerazzurri’s case, they are ready to sell Marcelo Brozovic to Al-Nassr. The Croat will follow Roberto Gagliardini out the exit door, leaving a sizable hole to fill in midfield.

Meanwhile, the Rossoneri are searching for a replacement for Sandro Tonali once they complete his massive money move to Newcastle United.

Milan’s signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea will not be their final midfield arrival for the summer.

Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi is on both clubs’ radars, particularly Inter’s. However, the Neroverdi’s steep €40 million asking price for the 23-year-old Italian international could prompt both to seek alternative targets.

Inter & AC Milan Both Keen On Udinese Star Lazar Samardzic

Former RB Leipzig man Samardzic is another name that both Inter and Milan are seriously thinking about.

According to Tuttosport, Inter have already contacted Udinese. They have told the Friulani that they consider him a target, and asked about whether a deal would be possible.

Udinese have indicated that they want at least €20 million for the Serb. This would certainly put him within Inter’s price range.

Inter could more or less cover the entire fee for Samardzic with the money they will receive from the sale of Brozovic. That would not be true of a move for Frattesi.

Meanwhile, the Rossoneri have also contacted Udinese. They will be able to invest a chunk of the Tonali fee should they pursue a move for Samardzic.

Inter and Milan are not the only big Serie A clubs tracking Samardzic either. Italian champions Napoli have lined the 21-year-old up as their first-choice replacement if they’re to sell Piotr Zielinski.
