Inter are working on Sime Vrsaljko, but Atletico Madrid won’t accept a loan with option to buy, so Napoli and Roma remain in the race.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, the Nerazzurri have already held intensive negotiations with the Croatia international’s entourage.
They are eager to get his all-clear before the World Cup has concluded, putting them in a position of strength.
However, Atletico Madrid have rejected the initial idea of taking the full-back on loan with option to buy, demanding at the very least an obligation to pay up a year down the line.
This allows Napoli and Roma to stay in the running for the ex-Sassuolo player.
