Udinese have given Inter Milan a clear price tag of €30 million for striker Beto.

This according to Udine-based newspaper Messaggero Veneto, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri have made further contacts with the Friulani regarding the 25-year-old’s signature, and have receive a clear response regarding a price tag.

Inter are looking around for a new striker target after their move for West Ham United’s Gianluca Scamacca fell through.

With Atalanta set to win the race for the 24-year-old Italian international, the Nerazzurri are considering their options.

One player who has a fairly similar profile to Scamacca stylistically speaking is Udinese striker Beto.

Like the Italian, the Portuguese is a tall, physically strong centre-forward who’s capable of acting a reference point for his team in the final third.

This is important because Inter coach Simone Inzaghi reportedly wants to sign an out-and-out Number Nine rather than just a player who scores goals.

Udinese Make Asking Price For Inter Milan Target Beto Clear

According to Messaggero Veneto, Beto’s name has come up in recent contacts between Inter and Udinese.

The two clubs have been in negotiations regarding a move for midfielder Lazar Samardzic. Giovanni Fabbian is headed in the other direction.

Messaggero Veneto report that the Nerazzurri have made their interest clear.

However, Udinese have told them that their first-choice centre-forward isn’t going to come cheap. The lowest offer they would listen to would be €30 million.

This is around what Atalanta have reportedly gotten a deal with West Ham to sign Scamacca for.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Inter were willing to put around €40 million to sign Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.

Therefore, it is possible that this would be in the ballpark of what Inter are ready to spend on a striker anyway.

However, whether or not the Nerazzurri would invest this much money in a second- or third-choice target is less clear.
