Inter Milan keep tabs on Chris Smalling and Giorgio Scalvini, as Skirniar or De Vrij could leave. The Nerazzurri are dealing with the contract extension of some key players. De Vrij and Skriniar’s contracts will end this summer, and Inter are waiting for their decision. So, the Nerazzurri are monitoring the situation of Scalvini and Smalling that can come in as a replacement. De Vrij seems likely to leave as he is not getting an improved contract from Inter.
The Nerazzurri are proactive with their decision-making and are preparing themselves if they lose Skriniar and De Vrij. Scalvini has been on Inter’s radar, and he will be a great acquisition given his talent and potential. While Smalling will come as a free agent in the summer and can serve as a replacement for De Vrij. Also, both defenders are familiar with the back three systems so they can settle easily.
Inter keep tabs on Smalling and Scalvini as replacement options
Smalling has the option of continuing with AS Roma, as he has the option to play for one more year. But he could also move to Inter or some other club, as he can still play at the top level. The Nerazzurri have only inquired about the former Manchester United defender and will wait for his decision in the summer. Meanwhile, they have their focus on the Atalanta prodigy, who is attracting interest from various Serie A clubs.
Scalvini has a heavy price tag, that Inter will agree to if Skriniar decides to leave. The Nerazzurri will have to make a big signing to fill the void left by the Slovakian defender. However, Scalvini will also need some convincing, as Napoli and Juve are looking to sign him. Inter have a good relationship with Atalanta and could offer a swap deal with Fabbian to pursue Scalvini.
