Inter are pushing to seal Djalo signing next summer. He emerged on the Nerazzurri’s radar during the January transfer window last season. This came with the realization that Milan Skriniar wouldn’t extend his contract. The Portuguese international was identified as a potential replacement for Skriniar.
While Milan Skriniar stayed at Inter until the end of the summer, Djalo remained a subject of interest. During the summer transfer window, Inter signed Benjamin Pavard to fill the void left by Skriniar. So Djalo, dealing with an ACL injury at the time, was not seen as their main candidate. However, Inter have maintained contact with Djalo’s representatives, much like they did during the pursuit of Marcus Thuram.
Inter Milan are pushing to seal Djalo for next summer
Inter is now looking to secure Djalo on a free transfer as the Nerazzurri are using this strategy to save funds on transfers. Also, they will be leveraging the fact that his contract with Lille expires at the end of June. So this goes in line with Inter’s tendency to explore free transfer opportunities. While Juventus and PSG also express interest, Inter have progressed further in their pursuit. However, they will have to keep moving fast to secure his signing.
The Nerazzurri is actively working on a five-year contract for Djalo, and will be offering a net annual salary of €2-2.5 million. Although Juventus and PSG are considering Djalo, Inter are approaching the negotiations with greater urgency. Djalo is looking for a move away from Lille as well, and this will help Inter to secure the singing soon. The Nerazzurri aims to finalize a pre-contract agreement with Djalo and his representatives by the end of January when the transfer window opens. Hence this approach reflects Inter’s determination to secure Djalo’s services as soon as possible. Also, Inzaghi does want to improve his defense.
