Inter: Imbula as well?

There’s no stopping Inter, as after Geoffrey Kondogbia and Joao Miranda, they’re ready to buy Marseille’s Giannelli Imbula for €19m.

It’s widely reported by multiple sources that Kondogbia will sign for the Nerazzurri today, penning a five-year contract worth almost €5m per season with €35m for Monaco.

Italian and Spanish papers are confident a deal has been done with Atletico Madrid for Miranda, paying €12m plus another €3m in bonuses.

Now Sky Sport Italia and Sport Mediaset claim Inter have exchanged paperwork with Olympique Marseille for Imbula.

The 22-year-old had initially been considered an alternative to Kondogbia, who was also in negotiations with Milan, but this evening it has become increasingly apparent the club can sign both.

It’s reported a deal is done worth €18.5m plus performance-related bonuses, with contracts signed by both clubs and the player.

However, Sky Sport Italia also maintain Marseille are surprised by the Kondogbia transfer and want to see if Inter are still prepared to go ahead for Imbula.

If not, then Tottenham, Arsenal and Milan all remain interested.
