Inter Milan will sign a striker during the summer transfer window, with Albert Gudmundsson and Joshua Zirkzee the big dreams.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Inter are gearing up for what will be a very important summer transfer window.

The reason is that the Nerazzurri’s squad depth will be put to the test more than ever next season.

Inter will play in Serie A, the Coppa Italia, the Supercoppa Italiana, the Champions League, and the Club World Cup.

With the expansion to the format of the latter two competitions, Inter could theoretically play as many as 69 matches across all competitions next campaign.

There will almost certainly be around sixty at least.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri will not feel that they can rely on the current squad, in terms of sheer depth.

And according to the Gazzetta, it is in attack where there is a particular need for greater depth.

Inter Will Sign A Striker This Summer – Gudmundsson & Zirkzee The Dreams

Inter will certainly have Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram next season. Then, there will be Mehdi Taremi, arriving on a free transfer from Porto.

It remains to be seen whether Marko Arnautovic sticks around or not.

But one way or another, Inter will be intent on signing another forward.

Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson is the top target in that regard. Inter will hope that they can sign the Icelandic international with a loan deal containing a purchase obligation.

Meanwhile, former Bayern Munich striker Joshua Zirkzee is also a player Inter would very much like to sign.

However, given the huge price tag that Bologna will put on the Dutchman, a deal would be unattainable under present conditions.

Then, Inter are also eyeing up Antwerp striker George Ilenikhena.

However, the 17-year-old Nigerian also has suitors in the Premier League. That could certainly drive the price up for his signature.

As such, Inter are keeping all options open in case they are unable to sign any of their primary targets.

The Gazzetta note that the Nerazzurri are particularly keeping an eye on potential opportunities for players leaving Premier League clubs.
