The rumored meeting between Inter Milan and the representatives of Lille striker Jonathan David has been denied.

The Canada international is a 24-year-old bomber who has been delivering the goods in Ligue 1 in recent years. He has so far scored 23 goals and provided seven assists this season.

Therefore, many observers tip the free-scoring forward to join a bigger club in the summer.

As we reported yesterday, news sources claimed that David’s agent held talks with Inter Milan and AC Milan.

Nevertheless, Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla dismissed the Nerazzurri’s reported interest in the striker’s services. The Canadian could instead end up at Milan, Napoli or the Premier League.

Pedulla quashes the rumors of a summit between the club’s directors and the player’s entourage. He describes the story as “baseless”.

On the other hand, the journalist insists that Inter are keen to maintain the services of Marcus Thuram.

The Frenchman has cemented himself as a key player in Simone Inzaghi’s starting lineup since his arrival last summer. The 26-year-old immediately formed a great understanding with club captain Lautaro Martinez.

Therefore, Pedulla believes the Serie A leaders won’t entertain any offers for the France international in the summer, even if a sale would yield massive capital gains.

Moreover, the source confirms the imminent arrivals of Mehdi Taremi and Piotr Zielinski in the summer. The Porto striker and Napoli midfielder will sign as free agents once their contracts with their respective clubs expire at the end of the season.

On the other hand, Pedulla denies Inter’s interest in Atletico Madrid defender Mario Hermoso.

The Spaniard is also running on an expiring contract and appears to be heading towards the exit door. However, the journalist rules Inter out of contention.

He insists that the Nerazzurri do not seek the signature of the Spain international.
