Inter are continuing to push Sampdoria for striker Eder, though the latest €8.5m offer was rejected.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Blucerchiati are holding out for their forward, who turns 29 in November.
Negotiations are continuing and could well reach a positive conclusion before Monday’s transfer deadline.
Eder is seen as an alternative to Mauro Icardi and can also play in a wider attacking role.
Samp paid €3.5m to sign him from Cesena in 2012 and since then the Brazilian has become an Italy international.
In turn, Eder is the more easily-accessible transfer alternative to PSG star Ezequiel Lavezzi.
