Llorente or Alexis Sanchez for Inter

Inter have reduced their forward options to two names, claim Sky Sport Italia, either Alexis Sanchez or Fernando Llorente.

Edin Dzeko is now off the table after he signed a contract extension with Roma last night.

Other candidates had been mentioned, including Ante Rebic of Eintracht Frankfurt, RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner or a swap between Mauro Icardi and Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik.

Another less likely exchange had been suggested since the start of the summer between Icardi and Juventus man Paulo Dybala, but that seems to have been scrapped by both clubs.

According to Sky Sport Italia, there are only two real candidates now for Inter to bolster their attack.

The first is Alexis Sanchez, who remains on the outskirts of the Manchester United squad and would be available on loan, but has a massive €10m per year salary.

The other is the ultimate low-cost option, as Llorente is a free agent after his Tottenham Hotspur contract expired.

Llorente has already worked with Antonio Conte at Juventus, is asking for €3m per year and is the most similar in style to Dzeko.
