Inter Milan are aiming to complete a deal to sign a striker within the next couple of days.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri want to reinforce their attack within the next 24-48 hours, with Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic and Porto’s Mehdi Taremi on their radar.

Inter have already signed one attacker this summer – ex-Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram on a free transfer.

However, the Frenchman’s arrival only fills one of the two slots vacated by Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri are still certainly prioritizing one more striker signing before the transfer window slams shut.

The priority is to bring in a physical out-and-out Number Nine who can bring a reference point in the final third and strong holdup play. That is the specific request of Inter coach Simone Inzaghi.

Plenty of names have already come up in Inter’s search.

The Nerazzurri pulled out of talks to sign Lukaku on a permanent basis last month. Gianluca Scamacca joined Atalanta despite talks with the Nerazzurri.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and USMNT striker Folarin Balogun looks to have fallen off Inter’s radar a bit.

Inter In A Hurry To Sign A Striker – Arnautovic & Taremi Candidates

According to the Corriere della Sera, Inter are still actively pursuing 34-year-old Bologna striker Arnautovic.

The Rossoblu have rebuffed the Nerazzurri’s initial offers for the former West Ham United and Stoke City man. However, they should soon present an improved offer.

According to the Corriere della Sera, Inter still feel that they can get a deal done for Arnautovic if their bid reaches around €10 million.

Meanwhile, the Corriere della Sera reports, contacts are also ongoing for Porto striker Taremi.

The 31-year-old would likely cost significantly more than Arnautovic. Porto are still aiming for a fee of around €30 million.

Lastly, the Corriere della Sera report, Inter are also continuing to consider Udinese striker Beto as an option.
