Kevin Danso and Jaka Bijol are among Inter Milan’s defensive targets as Stefan de Vrij is on the radar of Al Ittihad and PSV.

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

Inter are currently lining up their possible transfer targets in defense.

It now looks inevitable that the Nerazzurri will sign a defender this summer. And this is for a couple reasons.

Firstly, the long-term injury to Tajon Buchanan means that Inter will aim to use Carlos Augusto exclusively or primarily as a wingback next season.

That is a blow to Inter’s defensive depth. The versatile Brazilian played an important role filling in on the left of the back three last season.

Moreover, there is also the possibility that 32-year-old Dutch international de Vrij could be heading for the exit door this summer.

Both Al Ittihiad and PSV are keen on the Dutchman.

And given de Vrij’s importance last season, Inter would have a job to do in replacing him.

Danso & Bijol On Inter Defensive Shortlist As De Vrij Linked With Al Ittihad & PSV

Inter could aim to sign a player with a similar profile to de Vrij this summer.

The former Lazio defender is a tall, physically strong defender with good man-marking skills, capable of marshalling the penalty area at the centre of a back three.

And Udinese defender Jaka Bijol is a player who has certainly shown himself capable of doing that.

The 25-year-old had a standout EURO 2024 with Slovenia. He adeptly marked high-profile strikers such as Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Another player who had an eye-catching Euros was Lens and Austria defender Danso.

According to Tuttosport, the 25-year-old former Southampton and Augsburg defender is another defender who Inter are following closely.

Danso has shown his best form playing in a back three at Lens. That certainly makes him more attractive to Inter.
