Inter Milan still consider Bento as their primary target, while Michele Di Gregorio and Emil Audero remain the alternative options.

The Nerazzurri have been keen to sign the 24-year-old since last summer. While they failed to strike an agreement with Athletico Paranaense last season, a move could be more plausible this time around.

The Italian champions would like to bring in the Brazilian as an understudy for Yann Sommer before he eventually takes the torch from the Swiss veteran.

However, Inter could face some competition for the goalkeeper who recently impressed on his debut for Brazil. Chelsea and other clubs have reportedly emerged as suitors.

So according to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInter1908, the Nerazzurri are keeping alternative routes alive.

As the source explains, Inter are still monitoring the impressive Michele Di Gregorio.

The 26-year-old is a Nerazzurri youth product who has been developing his game at Monza since 2020. The Italian is now considered amongst the best custodians in Serie A.

However, Juventus have been making progress in their attempts to lure him to Turin.

Therefore, Inter could eventually resign to their third option, that is maintaining the services of Emil Audero.

The 27-year-old joined Simone Inzaghi’s ranks in the summer on loan from Sampdoria.

Inter have the option to sign him on a permanent basis for 7 million euros. However, the management isn’t keen to exercise this right. Yet, there have been talks over a possible loan extension.

This season, the Italian has made two appearances in Serie A where he managed to register a couple of clean sheets. He had one outing in the Champions League and another in the Coppa Italia, conceding five goals in total.
