Inter Milan may have an agreement in principle with Tiago Djalo but Juventus are looking to thwart their plans in January.

The Nerazzurri have been tracking the 23-year-old for quite some time. They were even considering signing him last summer but an ACL injury in March derailed their plans.

Nevertheless, the defender is currently running on an expiring contract. Therefore, the Serie A leaders are looking to poach him on a free transfer in June.

But according to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInter1908, Inter are running the risk of losing the player’s services to Juventus.

The Bianconeri are reportedly planning an overtake in January.

In other words, the Turin-based giants could be willing to spend five million euros to buy the Portuguese next month.

Lille would be in favor of the operation, as they would rather sell Djalo and collect a payment rather than lose his services for free six months later.

So although Inter have an agreement in principle with the defender’s agents, the move remains up in the air.

Nevertheless, the Beneamata are hoping to count on the long-established rapport with the player and his entourage to tip the scale in their favor.

However, Inter aren’t willing to step up in January. Instead, they’ll be focusing on signing their primary target Tajon Buchanan.

Hence, the Nerazzurri can only wait and hope that Djalo and his agents stick to the verbal agreement and eventually land at Appiano Gentile in the summer.

Djalo started his career at Sporting Lisbon and then had a brief spell at AC Milan’s Primavera before signing for Lille in 2019.
