Inter considering surprise move for Udinese goalkeeper Okoye


Inter Milan are reportedly exploring options for a second goalkeeper to support Yann Sommer for next season. The Nerazzurri have been closely linked with Bento from Athletico Paranaense and Genoa’s Martinez have been considered, but Udinese’s Maduka Okoye has emerged as a potential candidate.

Last season, Inter secured Emil Audero on loan from Sampdoria to play as backup, but with his loan spell ending, Audero has attracted interest from Serie A side Como for the upcoming season, leaving a vacancy for the backup goalkeeper role at Inter.

Sky Sport Italia detail the candidates, confirming that Okoye has caught Inter’s eye. Okoye joined Udinese in the summer of 2023 and has quickly established himself, taking over the starting position from Marco Silvestri. His decisive and commendable performances have made him a standout player, and after just one season in Friuli, he is being considered for a move to a club with greater ambitions. Inter’s sporting director, Piero Ausilio, is actively involved in evaluating these options.
