Inter bid €30m for Martinez?

Italian media claim Inter are close to a €30m deal for Porto striker Jackson Martinez, selling Samir Handanovic.

According to Mediaset Premium, the Nerazzurri have set their sights on the Colombian international forward who had already been close to joining Napoli last summer.

It’s reported Inter emissaries were in the stands to watch the Porto-Sevilla Europa League quarter-final on Thursday.

The price-tag for 27-year-old Martinez is thought to be €30m, which Inter would reach by offering €27m plus a further €3m in performance-related bonuses.

He has scored 16 goals in 25 League games this season, plus a further three in 10 European outings.

Mediaset also maintain President Erick Thohir will raise the funds for Martinez by selling goalkeeper Handanovic.

The Slovenian international can make around €20m and is of interest to the likes of Manchester City and Atletico Madrid.
