Inter reportedly turned to Lucas Torreira after being rejected for Javier Pastore, but Sampdoria won't do a deal.
The Nerazzurri have been trying desperately to bolster their midfield options, and had been working on bringing Flaco back to Italy for weeks.
Earlier today though the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder's agent left Milan, indicating that the transfer is dead in the water.
According to Premium Sport, the Benemata tried with a late bid for Torreira, offering a loan with option to buy.
Despite the good relationship between the clubs, the Blucerchiati rejected that out of hand.
