Inter will reportedly make a bid for Ezequiel Lavezzi after Napoli’s Italian Cup Final against Juventus on May 20.
Stories are gathering pace that the Argentine is at the top of the club’s transfer wish-list as they look to reinforce ahead of next season.
The forward has a €31m rescission clause built into his San Paolo contract, but the Nerazzurri are hoping to tempt the Azzurri with a cash plus player deal.
Although initially prepared to offer Napoli money and defender Andrea Ranocchia, Inter have formulated another offer.
The Beneamata are prepared to table €15m, plus the contract of Goran Pandev – already on loan from Inter – and Marco Davide Faroni. They are also prepared to loan Napoli defender Juan Jesus.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Lavezzi would be handed the No 21 shirt at San Siro as ‘his’ No 22 is on the back of Diego Milito.
