With Juventus in advanced talks for Romelu Lukaku, Inter turn to PSG star Edinson Cavani with help from Jiangsu Suning.
Coach Antonio Conte goes into August with only Lautaro Martinez and teenager Sebastiano Esposito as recognised centre-forwards.
Juve sent Paulo Dybala’s agent to London for negotiations with Manchester United, taking Inter’s first choice Lukaku in exchange, while Roma continue to demand €20m for Edin Dzeko.
The Nerazzurri are forced to turn towards Plan C and that is Cavani, who is in the final year of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and has plenty of Serie A experience at Palermo and Napoli.
According to ItaSportPress, Inter could raise the €50m fee by lining up a future transfer to their sister club in China, Jiangsu Suning.
The Uruguay international would also receive a three-year contract worth €9m per season.
