Inter aren’t done yet, as La Gazzetta dello Sport claims they are planning a late swoop for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The Nerazzurri signed Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United for a club record fee of €65m plus €10m in bonuses and five per cent of a future sale.
They are also on the verge of securing Edin Dzeko from Roma for €20m, but there is another big buy in the works.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are ready to invest €75m plus bonuses to reach the €90m asking price for Milinkovic-Savic.
That sum could be raised by selling Joao Mario and above all Mauro Icardi, although the Premier League window has now shut, so they must look elsewhere for buyers.
Lazio had been ready to sell Milinkovic-Savic to Manchester United on those terms, but the Red Devils never pushed all the way to a conclusion.
Time is of the essence, as the Biancocelesti won’t let Milinkovic-Savic go unless they have a suitable replacement, so Inter can’t leave it too late.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain remain on the back-burner with their eyes on a Milinkovic-Savic bargain, but are hampered by the Neymar situation.
