Inter are reportedly keen on signing Simone Verdi in January after scouting the Bologna forward.
According to Tuttosport, Verdi has been on the radar of Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio “for a long time”, explaining he could strike the ‘blow’ that takes the Scudetto to San Siro.
The 25-year-old has been a rare bright spark in Italian football this season, scoring four goals and assisting just as many to help Bologna into European contention.
His performances also saw him start the Azzurri’s World Cup qualifier against FYR Macedonia last month, despite it ending in disappointment.
Verdi began his career at Milan and also turned out for the likes of Empoli and Spanish side Eibar before joining the Rossoblu last year.
