Inter scout Torreira

It’s reported Inter sent scouts to watch Sampdoria beat Spal at the weekend, with Lucas Torreira thought to be the object of their interest.

The Nerazzurri have Financial Fair Play obligations, but they’re still looking to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window.

According to SampdoriaNews, scout Corrado Verdelli was in the Marassi stands on Saturday to watch the Blucerchiati beat Spal.

Tuttomercatoweb speculates that Torreira is the player he was sent to watch, and the Beneamata could even make a move for him in January.

Given their FFP restrictions, any deal would likely have to be a loan with obligation to buy, so his cost wouldn’t go onto the books for this season.
