Inter Milan are reportedly willing to offer some of their own players in exchange to remain in pole position to sign Alessandro Buongiorno.

The 24-year-old is a youth product of Torino who rose through the club’s ranks to gradually become a stalwart in the first team.

The Italian has been enjoying a solid campaign under the guidance of Ivan Juric. He has also become a regular feature in the national team.

Aside from the Nerazzurri, the defender’s suitors include AC Milan as well as Premier League clubs.

Therefore, the Granata have raised their asking price to 40 million euros. They are hoping to spark a bidding war in the summer.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, Inter are eager to beat the competition, even if they would struggle to forge the aforementioned figure.

The Nerazzurri would be able to afford Buongiorno if they were to sell Alessandro Bastoni for circa 70 million euros. However, this is a scenario that Inter prefer to avoid.

The alternative solution would be lowering the price tag by offering young players in exchange.

How Inter Milan Plan To Overcome The Competition For Torino Defender Alessandro Buongiorno

The Turin-based newspaper names three potential counterparts. Inter could begin by offering Martin Satriano and Francesco Pio Esposito. They could even be willing to put Valentin Carboni on the plate.

As for Milan, their summer priority will be signing a new striker who costs less than 50 million euros.

Nevertheless, the Rossoneri could still launch an attempt to lure Buongiorno. They would also be willing to offer Torino some of their youngsters, the likes of Marco Pellegrini, Jan-Carlo Simic, Filippo Terracciano and even Lorenzo Colombo.

Finally, the source expects Buongiorno’s future to be decided after the European Championship.
