Inter had Lacazette lined up

It’s reported Inter had already agreed terms with Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in case they sold Mauro Icardi to Napoli.

The Partenopei made a very strong play for Icardi over the summer after losing Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus.

In the end, the offer of €60m plus bonuses was rejected and Icardi is expected to sign a new contract at San Siro.

However, Calciomercato.it claim Inter had already worked out a Plan B, agreeing terms with 25-year-old Lacazette.

Lyon, Malaga, Villarreal want Iturbe

Olympique Lyonnais, Malaga and Villarreal have asked Roma to take Juan Manuel Iturbe on loan.

The 23-year-old Paraguay international spent last season on loan at Bournemouth with an option to buy, but he barely set foot on the pitch.

Luciano Spalletti tried to evaluate Iturbe over the summer, but he did not sufficiently impress.

Now L’Equipe claim Lyon have made an offer to take Iturbe on loan this season.

The French side join the race, as there are also proposals from Spain via Villarreal and above all Malaga.

Milan and Torino in for Grenier

Milan and Torino are the favourites to sign Clement Grenier from Olympique Lyonnais, writes L’Equipe.

The 25-year-old midfielder had already been linked with Sunderland and Palermo in recent months.

“Grenier will not be in our squad this season,” announced President Jean-Michel Aulas.

“During our last meeting he made some requests that were difficult to accept. I don’t know if he did it on purpose, but from that moment on he was for sale. It’s as if he asked to leave.”
