Inter director Beppe Marotta has spoken about the clubs transfer targets for the summer and shed some light on the current status of some deals. The Nerazzurri are being linked with moves for Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku, deals that are expected to be completed very soon.
Speaking to Radio Anch’Io, s quoted by FCInternews, Marotta confirmed talks are in place for the Belgian, but a deal won’t be announced today:
It’s a feasible path, but there are some difficulties and we need to evaluate whether there’s a chance to make it. We won’t announce Lukaku’s return today.
Lukaku and Dybala are our targets, but we need to consider financial issues.
We are in talks with these two players and we’ll be happy if we sign them. If not, we’ll consider different targets. The single player is not important, what matters is the group and this is already a solid team.
We have our target: make a capital gain from transfers and reduce the wage bill. It’s in our interest to keep a strong team because this is the history of this club. We believe Lautaro is fundamental to pursuing these objectives.
Inzaghi will have new signings, but I don’t know who they will be. Mkhitaryan will be official in the next few days, the same goes for Onana.
We are evaluating a bit of everything, also players from the Primavera team who became Italy champions. We know that we must wait for young players and build a strong team. We’ll try to offer Inzaghi a strong team from the start of the season.
Skriniar? It’s more difficult to replace a striker than a defender because there aren’t many of the first ones and they have high prices. Probably, we’ll be forced to do something in defence, but Ausilo, Baccin and I are already considering valid alternatives if one of our defenders leaves.
Gleison Bremer is a world-class defender who would be useful for many top teams. Surely, we are interested in him.”
