Inter 'consider Matuidi & Matri'

Inter are reportedly considering late moves for Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi and Sassuolo striker Alessandro Matri.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have turned to Matuidi after encountering problems for Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal.

The 32-year-old was called up to the France squad for their September internationals but is no longer a first pick for the Bianconeri.

Although his desire has always been to stay in Turin, it is understood the Old Lady are ready to sell him or Emre Can.

The former Paris Saint-Germain man was signed in the summer of 2017 by Beppe Marotta, when the Nerazzurri general manager was still employed at the Allianz Stadium.

As for Matri, La Gazzetta writes Matri could be drafted in as a backup for Romelu Lukaku, with Mauro Icardi facing no way back.

The 35-year-old played under Antonio Conte at Juve between 2011 and 2013, scoring 31 goals winning two Scudetti.

The former Milan and Italy hitman would also be available at a low price, given he is not a starter for Sassuolo.
