Brazil and Inter Milan goalkeeper Bento has made his priority to join Inter Milan during the summer transfer window clear.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.

Reports indicate that Bento is a major target for Inter.

The Nerazzurri have been tracking the Brazilian for at least a year.

However, now Inter appear to have decided to go all-in on signing Bento.

The 24-year-old is the player who Inter believe is the ideal candidate to become their starting goalkeeper in the long term.

At the moment, that is Yann Sommer. The 35-year-old joined Inter from Bayern Munich last summer, and his form has hardly been a problem for this summer.

But the fact remains that, even if Sommer is able to keep his current level up for a couple more seasons, he is hardly the solution beyond that point.

Therefore, Inter see a long-term successor as a major priority. They want to sign a younger keeper who can back up Sommer for a season before taking over permanently.

Bento Wants Inter Milan Move As Priority

Inter will aim to make their move for Bento in the coming weeks.

The Nerazzurri know that, while the Brazilian has a release clause of 60 million, Paranaense will likely let him go for around 20 million.

That is higher than the 12 million bid that Inter were weighing up last summer.

But this is simply a reflection of the fact that Bento’s form has risen significantly.

The 24-year-old is now a full Brazilian international. He has also attracted the interest of teams in the Premier League.

Nevertheless, Tuttosport report, there is one advantage that could be decisive in Inter’s favour.

Bento himself is very keen on an Inter move. That has been his desire last summer.

According to Tuttosport, none of the other interest has thus far turned Bento’s head.

The Brazilian sees Inter as his ideal destination for next season.
