Inter Milan could aim to sign another striker this summer after Marko Arnautovic – even if Joaquin Correa stays.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri could decide to further reinforce their attack in the event that President Steven Zhang gives the green light to do so.

Inter are on the verge of getting a deal done to sign Arnautovic.

The 34-year-old former West Ham United and Stoke City man will sign a two-year deal to join from Bologna.

Numerically speaking, Arnautovic is the player who completes the attack for next season. With the Austrian in place, the Nerazzurri will have senior senior forwards at the disposal of coach Simone Inzaghi.

But, the Corriere della Sera suggests, there remains a sense that this attack is not sufficient.

Inter Could Make Another Attacking Signing – Even Without Offloading Joaquin Correa

Whilst Arnautovic adds experience and a strong physical presence to lead the line, there are doubts about him.

The 34-year-old spent a significant chunk of last season on the sidelines with injury.

And whilst Marcus Thuram arrived this summer on high wages and with big expectations, it may take some time for the Frenchman to truly find his feet in an Inter shirt.

That certainly looks to be the case based on the Nerazzurri’s preseason.

Thuram has shown flashes of his undeniable talent here and there. But the 26-year-old did not get on the scoresheet in any of Inter’s preseason friendlies.

Therefore, other than the virtually undroppable Lautaro Martinez, Inzaghi may have to choose between several far-from-ideal options for his starting attack.

Arnautovic is the kind of classic centre-forward profile the coach wants – but he’s 34 and injury-prone.

And Thuram is an impressive talent who scored prolifically in the Bundesliga – but the coach may prefer to introduce him to the team more slowly whilst he finds his feet.

Therefore, the Corriere della Sera anticipates, another attacking signing is not out of the question for Inter.

However, for that to happen, they would need for Zhang to approve the investment.
