Antonio Conte has asked Inter to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United to reinforce their attack, according to the Corriere dello Sport.
Multiple sources are confident Conte has agreed terms to take over at Inter next season, with Luciano Spalletti being shown the door.
He would request many changes to the squad in order to forge it into his identity, particularly on the wings and in attack.
Diego Godin has already signed a three-year contract as a free agent, after letting his deal with Atletico Madrid run down.
The Corriere dello Sport claims Conte has specifically called on the Nerazzurri to bring in Belgium international striker Lukaku from Manchester United.
It is certainly not the first time that Lukaku, who turns 26 on Monday, has been linked with a move to San Siro.
So far this season, the Belgian has scored 15 goals with four assists in 45 competitive games for Manchester United.
He’d be the replacement for Mauro Icardi, who is on his way out after a season filled with controversy and poor form.
