Inter Milan are plotting a summer move for Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson, which could include offering Valentin Carboni.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Gudmundsson is a player whose star has been rising steadily in the past twelve months or so.

The Icelander joined Genoa in January of 2022. However, he was not able to prevent the Grifone from suffering relegation to Serie B in his first season at the club.

Last campaign, Gudmundsson helped Genoa to come straight back up to Serie A.

And back in the top flight, the former AZ Alkmaar forward has thrived.

Gudmundsson has been one of the outstanding players from outside of Serie A’s biggest clubs. The 26-year-old has bagged ten goals and three assists so far this season.

Moreover, Gudmundsson has brought far more than just goals and assists to the team.

The Icelander’s versatility has been a key asset for Genoa.

Gudmundsson can play anywhere from central midfield to as a striker. Inter saw this firsthand as the 26-year-old played both roles effectively in a recent Serie A match.

Meanwhile, Gudmundsson has also been impressing for his country recently.

The Genoa forward had a starring role as Iceland beat Iceland 4-1 in a Euro 2024 qualifying match on Thursday. Gudmundsson’s hat-trick proved to be the difference in that match.

Inter are not the only club with an interest in Gudmundsson.

Juventus are also keen on the 26-year-old.

But the Nerazzurri are increasingly thinking about making Gudmundsson their main target in attack for this summer, and strategizing on how they could beat the competition for his signature.

Genoa will want at least 30 million for the Icelandic international.

But Inter could hope to lower that valuation somewhat by including young attacking midfielder Valentin Carboni as part of the deal.

Meanwhile, the Gazzetta report, Inter could structure a deal for Gudmundsson similarly to the one that saw them sign Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo last summer.

That deal was an initial loan. However, it contained an obligation to sign Frattesi on a permanent basis for a fee.
