Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio provides the latest updates on some of the ongoing transfer stories at Inter Milan, including the saga of Tiago Djalo.
The Nerazzurri have placed themselves in pole position to sign the Portuguese defender in the summer.
The 23-year-old’s contract with Lille will expire at the end of the season. Hence, the Serie A leaders have been working with the player’s entourage on a free transfer in the summer.
However, Juventus have now entered the fray and are looking to strike a deal with Lille that would bring Djalo to Turin in January.
But according to Di Marzio, Inter haven’t changed their plans in the face of the Old Lady’s emerging challenge.
In other words, the Nerazzurri only intend to sign the centre-back in June once his contract with Lille runs out. They have no intention of getting themselves embroiled in a bidding war this month.
Hence, this opens the door for Juventus and Atletico Madrid who could be willing to jump at the opportunity in January.
The Italian journalist believes that it could ultimately depend on the player’s decision. He could decide to wait for Inter until June or accept an alternative offer this month.

Di Marzio also provides updates on Lucien Agoume’s situation. The 21-year-old has been torn between Sevilla and Olympique Marseille in recent days.
However, it appears that the track that leads to Southern France has now faded, with the midfielder preferring to embark on an Andalusian adventure.
Sevilla’s president confirmed that the negotiations with Inter are now at an advanced stage.
Finally, the transfer guru reveals that Stefano Sensi has yet to receive any concrete offers in January. The 28-year-old will become a free agent in June, but he’s seeking a January exit in search of playing time.
This morning, news reports linked him with a return to his former club Sassuolo.
