Inter are reportedly prepared to give up Gabriel Barbosa for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella.
According to Tuttosport, talks are ‘increasingly intense’ between Flamengo and Inter, but the Brazilian side have yet to meet Gabigol’s €18m valuation.
Consequently, the newspaper believes the Nerazzurri could drive the price down for Barella, who is rated at €50m and also a target for Chelsea, by handing over the former Santos attacker.
Alternatively, the Beneamata could re-register Eder – who currently plays for sister club Jiangsu Suning – and send him to Cagliari instead.
