Inter Milan target 4 players for the summer, including Lukaku and Brozovic back-ups. As reported by Calcio Mercato. The Nerazzurri were looking for a back-up striker in January too but did not buy anyone. The board now feels that there 4 areas of the pitch that needs to be upgraded.
Also, a lot depends on how the ownership talks go, and how the club covers their debt and meets their financial needs. Suning is reluctant to leave Inter, while the BC partners have given their final offer. All these things will factor into Inter’s transfer strategy in summer.
Inter target four players for the summer
First, needs a replacement for Samir Handanovic whose contract ends this summer and has not received any extension offer. He will turn 37 by then and the board are looking for his heir to guard between the posts. The management really likes Juan Musso. But he would be expensive, and other clubs are also after him. Then, they want a player similar to Achraf Hakimi on the left flank which would be difficult to find. Perisic is more of a winger and can not defend well. While Ashley Young is past his prime and lacks pace. Darmian does not give that belief in going forward. So it is important to find a quality left wing-back.
Moreover, they are also looking for a back-up for Marcelo Brozovic, given that not even Christian Eriksen has proved able to fulfill that role. The Dane can not make crucial challenges and lacks the strength to guard the defensive line. Finally, Inter will also seek a back-up striker for Romelu Lukaku. Sanchez does not provide that level of goal threat when the Belgian is not present. So the board will seek for a quality striker upfront. However, Ausilio and Marotta do not know yet who they will be answering to in the summer and how much money they will have available to spend.
