Inter Milan are considering a move to bring out-of-favour Bayern Munich defender Kim Min-Jae back to Serie A this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The outlet report that the 27-year-old is among the Nerazzurri’s targets in central defense.

Inter will most likely be looking to sign a player to reinforce their defense in the summer transfer window.

The Nerazzurri currently have Francesco Acerbi and Stefan de Vrij as central players in the back three.

However, both are well into their thirties, and their contracts expire at the end of June 2025.

Moreover, Acerbi is currently at the centre of a firestorm concerning his alleged racial abuse of Napoli’s Juan Jesus. Therefore, the 36-year-old former Lazio man’s future at Inter is in doubt.

Accordingly, the Gazzetta note, Inter are in the hunt for a tall, physical centre-back with strong man-marking ability around the penalty area to bolster their defense.

Inter Milan Eyeing Up Swoop For Bayern Munich’s Kim Min-Jae

One player who has certainly proven himself to be exactly the sort of profile Inter are looking for in Serie A is former Napoli defender Kim.

The South Korean international spent just one season with the Partenopei. He was at the club last campaign.

However, Kim’s performances left a big mark.

The 27-year-old was one of the key players as Napoli won the Serie A title for the first time in 33 years.

This form earned Kim a 50 million move to German giants Bayern Munich.

However, the South Korean’s form has not quite lived up to expectations in Bavaria.

In recent weeks, Kim has been dropped from the Bayern starting eleven.

The Bavarians signed Eric Dier from Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, to bolster a backline that already included the likes of Dayot Upemacano and Matthijs de Ligt.

Therefore, Bayern could already be looking to offload Kim this summer.

And Inter could swoop for the former Fenerbahce defender.

Despite Kim having fallen out of favour at Bayern, the Nerazzurri have no doubts about the player’s quality.

Naturally, the Nerazzurri would have financial limitations to work within. But the Gazzetta note that if Kim were to decide to force his way out of Bayern, they could sign him on an initial loan deal.

This would be similar to the manner in which Inter brought Romelu Lukaku back to the club from Chelsea two summers ago.
