London clubs handed boost as Inter Milan CEO lays out transfer plans

London clubs handed boost as Inter Milan CEO lays out transfer plans

 

Spurs and Chelsea chase Inter Milan players

Inter Milan players have been interesting both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur this summer, with Achraf Hakimi having allegedly been a target for Thomas Tuchel before he signed for Paris Saint-Germain.

In addition, Romelu Lukaku is thought to be an option if the club are unable to lure superstar forward Erling Haaland away from Borussia Dortmund, a feat that at present looks increasingly unlikely.

For their part, Tottenham are said to remain interested in Milan Skriniar, who was also a target during Jose Mourinho’s time at the club.

Inter Milan CEO outlines transfer plans

Until recently, both deals had appeared dead in the water, but Inter Milan’s CEO this week took to Italian radio station radiocor to outline the club’s summer plans, saying that:

“The objective is to cut the cost of the squad by 15-20 per cent, with a profit of €80m from the transfer market.”

At present, Achraf Hakimi has netted the club a cool 54 million pounds (62.5 million euros) according to transfermarkt.com, while Matteo Politano has joined Napoli for 17 million pounds (20 million euros).

However, Inter have also spent approximately 20 million euros bringing in Matteo Darmian and Zinho Vanheusden from Parma and Standard Leige respectively, while they continue to be linked with a move for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.

Such deals, before any potential move for the Spaniard, leave the Nerazzurri’s net summer profit at 57.2 million pounds (66.2 million euros), fourteen million euros below their target.

This fact could give clubs pursuing moves for the Italian club’s biggest assets a boost later in the window, and perhaps even push Inter into selling one of their key players.
