Inter transfer merry-go-round

Italian newspapers are overflowing with transfer speculation about Inter, including Carlos Tevez, Arjen Robben, Fernando, Guarin and Casemiro.

The Nerazzurri could still win the Coppa Italia, but are looking to rebuild the squad with big name reinforcements next season.

The Corriere dello Sport outlines a long list of potential candidates, starting with Manchester City striker Tevez.

The Argentine has stated he wants to leave Eastlands for either Spain or Italy, so Inter are said to be the top option for somewhere between €45m and €30m.

As part of the deal, the Nerazzurri would also step aside so that Manchester City can take Udinese talent Alexis Sanchez without a bidding war.

Inter's midfield is also under scrutiny with reports of a swoop for two Europa League winning Porto players, Fernando and Guarin.

Both could be snapped up for a total of €20m, as Portuguese man Fernando is worth €15m and €5m for Colombian Guarin.

Another alternative comes from Brazil, where San Paolo are ready to release Casemiro, but again Inter want to pay only half the €30m buy-out clause.

However, the Corriere also suggests that Bayern Munich star Robben is the main priority for their midfield, despite the cost of the operation and his notorious fitness problems.

A cheap and Italian option is Andrea Poli, who could move from Sampdoria in exchange for co-ownership of Joel Obi and other youth team players.
