Inter Milan reportedly have a winning card in hand as they look to lure in Genoa star Albert Gudmundsson, despite his Premier League aspirations.

The 26-year-old has risen to stardom in what has been a sensational breakout season at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium. He’s currently third in the Serie A scoring charts with 13 goals, only behind Inter captain Lautaro Martinez and Juventus bomber Dusan Vlahovic.

Moreover, the Icelandic striker already ranks third in Genoa’s all-time scoring charts in a single season. Only Argentine stars Diego Milito and Rodrigo Palacio have managed to score more in a solitary campaign with the Grifone.

Therefore, Gudmundsson has attracted the interest of several top clubs in Italy and Europe. In addition to the Nerazzurri, the list includes Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, the Iceland international dreams of playing in the Premier League.

He reportedly grew up following the EPL, and would like to test his skills on the English shores. However, the source believes Inter still have a card up their sleeve.

The Turin-based newspaper explains how the club’s sporting director Piero Ausilio has an excellent rapport with the player’s agency.

The source claims GG11 even helped the Nerazzurri sign Tajon Buchanan in January.

Nevertheless, reaching an agreement with Genoa remains an uneasy task for the Serie A runaway leaders. The Ligurians have named their price somewhere in between 35 and 40 million euros.

Inter will find it hard to splash this amount in cash. Therefore, they’ll be looking to lower the cost by introducing some of their youngsters as exchange pawns.

Gudmundsson joined Genoa in January 2022 while his current contract runs until the summer of 2027.
