Inter Milan could offer midfielder Stefano Sensi in addition to cash to try and sign Lazar Samardzic this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 27-year-old former Sassuolo midfielder could be part of the Nerazzurri’s strategy to snap up highly-rated Friulani midfielder Samardzic.

Midfielder Lazar Samardzic is also on the Nerazzurri’s radar. Inter are almost certain to make at least one more signing before the summer transfer window closes, and the 21-year-old is one of their main targets.

Inter’s priority is to sign a young midfielder with room to grow.

Rather than replacing Roberto Gagliardini with a veteran player, the Nerazzurri are keen on Samardzic.

However, it will not be easy to sign the German-born Serbia international. There is significant competition for his signature.

Napoli are very keen on Samardzic, whilst Juventus are also in the hunt. Moreover, Lazio reportedly want the former RB Leipzig star as their replacement for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Inter Could Offer Udinese Sensi + Cash For Samardzic

One aspect of Inter’s strategy to land Samardzic would be to see if Udinese want any of their players as part of a deal.

Striker Sebastiano Esposito is reportedly one player the Friulani are interested in. Therefore, the Nerazzurri could offer to send the 21-year-old to the Dacia Arena as part of a deal for Samardzic.

Then, there’s young midfielder Giovanni Fabbian. Inter could offer to send the 20-year-old to the Dacia Arena on loan in order to sweeten a bid for Samardzic, though there would be no chance of a permanent deal.

One other possibility that the Corriere reports is that Inter could offer Udinese Sensi.

The former Neroverdi man is back at Inter after his loan spell with Monza last season ended. The Brianzoli declined to sign Sensi on a permanent basis.

Sensi does not likely have a place in Inter’s plans for next season.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri could offer the 27-year-old as part of a deal for Samardzic. However, with Sensi worth around €7 million in Inter’s balance sheet, he would not come close to meeting Udinese’s valuation of the Serb.

Inter would therefore still have to put forward a significant cash fee.
