Inter Milan will sign a defender before the summer transfer window wraps up.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInter1908, who report that the Nerazzurri will also consider the future of midfield as they get their strategy in place for the final couple weeks of the window.

Inter have just over two weeks to go before the summer window slams shut.

The Nerazzurri have already made eight signings, whilst another one is almost certainly on the way in the form of striker Marko Arnautovic.

However, the club are not done yet. One or two will still almost certainly follow.

And Sky details what the Nerazzurri’s plan is for the remainder of the transfer window.

Inter Milan To Sign A Defender Before Window Closes

According to Sky, one thing that is virtually certain is that Inter will make a defensive reinforcement.

The Nerazzurri have already brought in 22-year-old German youth international Yann Bisseck.

However, Bisseck is more of a signing for the future.

The Nerazzurri will still need to bring in a defender who is ready to make an impact right away. Milan Skriniar made his exit official more than a month ago, and Inter still haven’t replaced the Slovakian.

Therefore, Inter’s biggest priority in the last couple weeks of the window is to sign a replacement for Skriniar.

The club have held off on doing so for weeks now. But now, they cannot afford to do so any longer.

The defensive arrival will come before the transfer window shuts, Sky predicts.

Inter Milan Still Mulling Over Midfield

Meanwhile, Inter are also assessing their options in midfield.

The Nerazzurri had thought for all the world that they had secured their second major midfield signing of the summer in the form of Lazar Samardzic.

However, the deal to sign the Serb from Udinese fell through.

Therefore, Inter must formulate a plan over the next couple weeks to give coach Simone Inzaghi a fully-stocked midfield.

Keeping Stefano Sensi in the squad looks to be a distinct possibility, Sky reports.

However, the broadcaster notes that the Nerazzurri haven’t made a final decision to go with the 28-year-old yet. They are still considering their strategy and all possible options.
