Inter Milan’s defensive shortlist reportedly includes Takehiro Tomiyasu, Trevoh Chalobah and Rafael Toloi.

As we reported earlier today, the Nerazzurri are preparing an offer for Benjamin Pavard whom they consider the ideal profile to bolster the backline.

Despite competition from Manchester United, the Italian giants are looking to snatch the services of the Bayern Munich defender.

Sources from Italy and France have confirmed Inter’s re-emerging interest in the 2018 World Cup winner.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, Inter Milan will be looking to pounce on their amicable rapport with Bayern to seal a deal for Pavard.

The two clubs have recently found an agreement that saw Yann Sommer joining the Serie A giants.

Nevertheless, this remains a daunting task at this stage of the summer. Therefore, the Nerazzurri must keep their options open.

Inter Milan Are Still Monitoring Takehiro Tomiyasu, Trevoh Chalobah And Rafael Toloi As Alternatives For Benjamin Pavard

Thus, the Beneamata are reportedly still tracking another three defenders as alternatives for Pavard.

The first is Chelsea’s youth product Trevoh Chalobah. The Nerazzurri like the Englishman’s profile. The 24-year-old could be willing to leave Stamford Bridge in search of additional playing time.

Then we have versatile Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu. However, the Gunners will likely decide to keep hold of the former Bologna man following Jurrien Timber’s ACL injury.

Finally, the source mentions Atalanta captain Rafael Toloi. However, this would also be a complicated task.
