As Napoli enter negotiations with Mauro Icardi, Inter are linked with Fiorentina striker Mario Gomez.
Today Icardi’s wife and agent, Wanda Nara, confirmed via Twitter that there was a meeting with “an intermediary” to discuss the Napoli proposal.
Rai Sport claim the Nerazzurri are looking to find a quick replacement and the first target is Gomez.
The Germany international just turned 31 and is under contract with Fiorentina until the end of the season.
He returned to base following a loan spell at Besiktas and announced he would not be making that move permanent because of the unstable political situation in Turkey.
There were rumours he had agreed terms with Wolfsburg, while Milan and West Ham United were also options.
