Biraghi to Inter for Politano and Dimarco

Inter are expected to bring in Cristiano Biraghi on loan with option to buy, with Matteo Politano and Federico Dimarco joining Fiorentina.

According to Sportmediaset, the deal is practically done and just awaiting medicals.

Originally, the plan had been for Inter to hand over cash plus Dalbert, but the French full-back rejected the move and is now leaning towards a return to his old club Nice instead.

Biraghi is Antonio Conte’s first choice to reinforce the left side of defence, while he can also be pushed into a more advanced role.

The Italy international turns 27 next month and is under contract with Fiorentina until June 2022.

As it now stands, the Viola will hand Biraghi over to Inter on loan with option to buy in exchange for both forward Politano and defender Dimarco moving to Fiorentina with the same terms.

Politano made a good impression with limited playing time at Inter, scoring six goals with eight assists in 48 competitive games following his €25m move from Sassuolo.
