Inter Milan have reportedly set their sights on Josep Martinez and Michele Di Gregorio. They would turn to one of them in case they fail to land Bento.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, the Brazil international remains the priority transfer target for the club.

The 24-year-old rose to prominence at Athletico Paranaense, cementing himself as one of the finest goalkeepers in Brazil.

He also earned his international debut against England in March and managed to impress at Wembley.

As the source explains, this didn’t help Inter’s cause, as it drove his price up to 20 million euros. It also attracted the attention of other suitors.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri are now exploring other options for the role, beginning with Josep Martinez.

The Spaniard is enjoying a fine debut season in Serie A with Genoa. The 25-year-old’s contract with the Grifone is valid only until 2025, so he could be available at an affordable price.

But while the Turin-based newspaper identifies Martinez as Plan B, it also mentions Di Gregorio as another option.

The Italian is a youth product of Inter who has been growing from strength to strength since joining Monza in 2020.

The 26-year-old has now cemented himself as one of the best custodians in Serie B. Juventus are reportedly in the lead for his signature, but his past with Inter could sway the balance in their favor.

Finally, the source doesn’t rule out Emil Audero’s stay for another year. The Italian joined the club last summer and has been serving as an understudy for Yann Sommer.

The 27-year-old is on loan from Sampdoria while Inter have the option to buy him for 7 million euros.

Therefore, Audero’s stay remains on the cards, albeit it isn’t the club’s preferred option.
