Al-Ittihad Start Pursuing Inter Stalwart De Vrij

Inter barged into the talks between Napoli, Torino, and Alessandro Buongiorno also because Stefan De Vrij is being targeted by Al-Ittihad. The deal is in its early stages. It remains to be seen whether it will go on. The Partenopei have regained the pole position for the Torino star, Tuttomercatoweb informed.

The Saudi team is about to appoint Stefano Pioli and will likely be busy trying to lure Serie A players. They are ready to offer a very lucrative contract to the Dutchman.

Inter would eventually ask for €15M if the De Vrij wished to transfer to Al-Ittihad. The veteran has just a year on his contract with the Nerazzurri. He joined in a free move from Lazio in 2018.

The attempt for Buongiorno was disclosed directly by his agent Giuseppe Riso after a summit with the Scudetto winners. He stated that they had “more than a chat” regarding the Italian defender. On the other hand, he convened again with the Napoli brass afterward, giving his go-ahead to continue and likely complete the negotiation.

Our Take on Inter, De Vrij, and Al-Ittihad

The Nerazzurri could and probably should sign a defender without partying ways with one of their own. The Dutchman and Francesco Acerbi aren’t getting any younger, and they are one man short. Rather than numerically, the problem is where the money would come from, as no sale seems imminent. Given the ensuing turn of events in Napoli’s favor, things would get eerie if their staple wanted to depart anyway.
