Valentino Lazaro a few millions away from Inter:
Herta Berlin‘s Austrian winger Valentino Lazaro has been linked to a possible move to the blue side of Milan for a few weeks now.
The 23 year old right midfielder would be a perfect fit in Conte‘s 3-5-2 preferred formation. Having scored 3 goals and assisted on no less than 7 occasions in 31 match, Lazaro has participated in 20% of his clubs goal in Bundesliga this season.
According to Alfredo Pedulla, Inter and Hertha Berlin are close to finding an agreement. Inter are ready to pay 15 to 16M euros for the player while the Berlin based club value their player at approximatively 20M.
On the other hand, other big clubs are interested in the class 96 player. Namely, the English side Arsenal and the rich Paris Saint-Germain.
Note that Lazaro‘s agent is also Romelu Lukaku‘s. Maybe a sign of the Belgian joining the Nerazzuri soon?
Inter makes a new offer for Barella
Another episode on Nicolo Barella‘s saga, where Inter are said to be preparing a new offer for Cagliari‘s 22 year old midfielder.
Sky Sports Italia reports that Inter are ready to offer Cagliari 36M upfront plus 14M in bonuses. Reports suggest that 4M of the 14 in bonuses would be ‘easily met’ while the rest of it (10M) would be paid in case Inter succeeds in winning the Scudetto and/or the Champions League.
In addition to that, Inter are offering two young players on loan. The first one being Federico Dimarco who spent his season at Parma scoring one goal in 13 match. Cagliari would reportedly have an option to buy on the player. The option’s fee is yet to be determined.
However, the second player, Alessandro Bastoni who also spent his season on loan at Parma would be offered in a dry loan and return to Inter at the end of the season.
Now it’s up to Cagliari to answer to Inter’s offer. Cagliari who responded to Inter’s last offer by saying they wanted 50M cash and now for their little jewel!
Milan and PSG recently joined the race to get Barella, but reports claim he only has eyes for the Nerazzuri.
