Inter Milan are still dreaming of signing Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno but realize the difficulty of the task ahead.

The 24-year-old rose through the Granata youth ranks to carve himself a place in the first team. He has now become a key figure at the back for Ivan Juric.

The Italian’s exploits also caught the attention of Luciano Spalletti who has been repeatedly calling him up for international duty. Buongiorno is thus widely expected to feature in the Azzurri’s Euro 2024 squad.

In recent months, the player has also emerged as a transfer target for the Nerazzurri.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, the Serie A runaway leaders consider the Torino stalwart as the ultimate dream ahead of the upcoming summer transfer session.

However, Inter are aware of the obstacles they’ll face in their attempts to secure the player’s signature.

As the source explains, Torino president Urbana Cairo has slapped a 40-million price tag on the player’s back.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri will struggle to forge an offer that meets the Granata’s asking price.

Inter Milan Dream Of Signing Alessandro Buongiorno But Torino’s Asking Price Remains A Major Hurdle

This is why Inter directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio are keeping tabs on alternative options at the back.

As we reported earlier today, the Beneamata have set their sights on Barcelona’s Eric Garcia and Real Madrid’s Rafa Marin. The two Spaniards are currently on loan at Girona and Deportivo Alaves respectively.

As for Buongiorno, he remains tied to a contract with Torino running until the summer of 2028.

This season, the central defender has contributed with three goals and one assist in 26 appearances between Serie A and the Coppa Italia,
