Inter Milan eye Martial and Broja in the January transfer window, but the moves are hinging on the future of Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean striker might be on the verge of leaving, primarily due to offers from the Saudi Pro League. He is reportedly keen on staying at Inter Milan and proving his worth. But the final days of January could bring about changes if he does not get enough playing time under Simone Inzaghi.
If Sanchez opts for a move to Saudi Arabia, Inter Milan would be prompted to go into the transfer market to secure a suitable replacement. However, financial constraints could pose a challenge to their pursuits. The club is currently monitoring two potential profiles for the striker position.
The first candidate is Anthony Martial, who has faced challenges in terms of playing time and goal contributions at Manchester United this season. However, Fenerbahce has reportedly made progress in their pursuit of the 28-year-old Frenchman.
The second option on Inter’s radar is Armando Broja, from Chelsea. Broja’s contract with the Blues extends until 2028, and Inter Milan are considering a loan move. However, new regulations limit Chelsea to loaning out no more than seven players.
Inter Milan eye Martial and Broja as Sanchez’s replacement
Financial considerations play a significant role in Inter Milan’s transfer decisions. The potential departure of Stefano Sensi to Leicester City could bring in a 2 million euro transfer fee. Additionally, offloading Alexis Sanchez could yield a similar figure. The savings on his wages for the remainder of the season will help. The Super Cup victory could further contribute an additional 8 million euros to the Nerazzurri’s coffers.
As the transfer window progresses, Inter Milan will carefully weigh their options and assess the accounts to determine the feasibility of securing a suitable replacement for Sanchez. Both Broja and Martial are viable options to replace the Chilean.
