Inter eye Roberto Firmino from Liverpool as they search for Lukaku’s replacement. Firmino will be out of contract in June, so Inter are looking to sign him on a free transfer. However, the Nerazzurri will have to make a move in this window and get a pre-contract now. Liverpool have proposed a new deal to the Brazilian striker, and he could agree to extend his contract with them if Inter does not make a move.
Romelu Lukaku’s return to Inter has not been successful, so they are looking to replace him in the summer. The Nerazzurri will not extend the Belgian striker’s loan deal, as he is struggling with his fitness. Lukaku is trying to get his rhythm back, but his thigh injury has been recurring this season. His injury was the reason behind his poor performance for Belgium at the World Cup. Inzaghi and the coaching staff have supported him, but if his poor form continues, they will be forced to find a replacement for him.
Inter eye Roberto Firmino for the summer transfer window
The Nerazzurri are searching for a forward who can partner up with Lautaro at the top and complement his qualities. Firmino is a perfect option for that, as he is excellent with his linkup play and drops to create space for his teammates. The Brazilian striker can spot Lautaro’s run with his slick passing. Firmino has lost some pace over the years, but his close control and positioning are still top-notch.
The Nerazzurri will also search for other options if Firmino signs a new deal with Liverpool. Also, Firmino will have to take wage cut, as Inter will not be able to afford his current €10 million wages. Signing him on a free transfer will help Inter to focus on other targets. Inter Milan will have to find a replacement for Skriniar as he does not want to renew with Inter.
