Inter Milan are planning for the 2024-25 season with some key contract extensions, and moves for Albert Gudmundsson and Mario Hermoso.

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

Objective number one for Inter remains to finish the job and win the Serie A title.

But the sense now is that that is only a matter of weeks away.

So while the team focus on the task at hand on the pitch and in training, work is already well underway to lay the foundations for next season by the Nerazzurri directors.

The intention is clear in this respect: Inter want to consolidate the strength that the team already has, and also improve it.

On the first count, that means that Inter will wrap up contract extension talks with a couple key players.

One is captain Lautaro Martinez. The negotiations with the Argentine and his agent have already perhaps dragged on longer than Inter had expected.

The Nerazzurri have yet to make a financially sufficient offer. But they are confident that they can do so, likely not long before or after the end of this season.

Similarly, Inter will aim to have midfielder Nicolo Barella sign a new deal before the summer transfer window kicks into gear as well.

And lastly, the Nerazzurri are planning to hand coach Simone Inzaghi a new contract until the end of June 2027 in the coming weeks.

Not Just Contract Extensions – Inter Also Targeting Gudmundsson & Hermoso

But tying down the existing squad is not all that Inter plan to do this summer.

The Nerazzurri also want to strengthen with new signings.

There are a couple new arrivals already confirmed. Both Porto’s Mehdi Taremi and Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski will arrive on free transfers.

But Inter are far from done. They have a couple more big targets for this summer, reports the Gazzetta.

One is Genoa forward Albert Gumdundsson. The 26-year-old former AZ Alkmaar man has been one of the outstanding players in Serie A this season.

Gudmundsson’s form means that he will not come cheap.

Genoa want no less than 30 million for the Icelander, who’s also a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

But Inter view Gudmundsson as the ideal player to complete their attack for next season. So he is a player they are willing to make an investment in, according to the Gazzetta.

Mario Hermoso, on the other hand, can arrive via the same route as Taremi and Zielinski – a free transfer.

The 28-year-old former Espanyol defender’s contract with Atletico Madrid expires at the end of June.

Hermoso may not require a transfer fee to sign. But the Spaniard will still expect significant wages.

However, the Gazzetta report, Inter are prepared to offer Hermoso a four-year deal worth 5 million net per season.
