According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter are believed to be ready to make an offer for Sampdoria’s Joachim Andersen, but they need to sell Joao Miranda first.
The Brazilian international lost his starting spot to the new addition of de Vrij. Reports claims that Miranda is unhappy at Inter and has requested a transfer as he wants more playing time.
Corriere dello Sport now report that Miranda’s replacement is Joachim Andersen.
Inter are ready to offer a €5-6m loan, plus a youngster – probably Zinho Vanheusden – with an obligation to buy in the summer.
Due to Financial Fair Play restrictions, Inter can’t buy Andersen outright in January, but they can fund the loan with the money made by selling Miranda.
There are several issues whoever, the first being Samp’s unwillingness to sell any of their starters in January.
The second is that the obligation to buy would be around €30M, taking the total cost of the deal to above €40M when the loan and Vanheusden’s value are taken into account.
Finally, it is difficult to determine whether any club is willing to match Inter’s asking price of €10M for Miranda, though Roma and Flamengo are interested.
The Nerazzurri need at least €5-6M to cover the loan, but Miranda’s salary and age would probably push any transfer fee down.
