Inter target Folarin and Morata as they plan their course of action after Lukaku’s departure. The Nerazzurri are looking to sign another forward this window to fill the void left by the Belgian striker. Inzaghi wants to bring Morata from Atletico Madrid, as the Spanish forward has relevant experience playing in Serie A. While the Nerazzurri directors want to go for a younger option, who will be a better alternative for the future. They have identified Folarin Balogun from Arsenal as the ideal candidate.
Marcus Thuram, who arrived earlier, will be playing the majority of the games alongside Lukaku. But Inter needs another option for rotation during the season. So Inter does not want to spend much on this transfer, but bringing in a player like Balogun will help Inter to build a squad for the seasons to come. While Morata can come for a lower price and can hit the ground running as he is familiar with the league.
Inter Milan target Folarin and Morata as Lukaku’s replacement
Lukaku decided to conduct talks with Juventus despite Inter showing their faith in him. Inter were negotiating with Chelsea over a new loan deal, but the Blues wanted a permanent move for Lukaku. Chelsea do not want to bring Lukaku back after his horrific season under Tuchel. But they are now struggling to find a suitor, who wants to acquire the services of the former Man United striker.
Meanwhile, Inzaghi and Inter directors including Ausilio And Baccin have different opinions over their new transfer target. Simone Inzaghi would like to have an experienced striker who he can rely on throughout the season. Moreover, Morata will require less management as the former Juve striker knows the dynamics of the league. While Folarin will take some time before adjusting in Serie A, and Inzaghi will have to be patient with him.
