Inter Back in the Hunt for Dortmund Defensive Outcast

Inter are back in the hunt for defensive reinforcements, with Borussia Dortmund ace Manuel Akanji still in their crosshairs. Losing out on new Juventus signing Gleison Bremer handed Inter a major transfer blow. With Paris Saint-Germain target Milan Skriniar’s future still up in the air, the Nerazzurri are eager to bolster their defense, as Stefan De Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni and Skriniar himself are the mainstay defenders at the moment.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb), the Switzerland international’s exclusion from Dortmund’s inaugural 2022/23 league season encounter against Bayer Leverkusen only reinforces links with the Milan giants. It is reported that Akanji is not in BVB’s plans for the current season.

His contract at Die Schwarzgelben expires in June 2023, but the defender himself does not want to extend his deal at the Signal Iduna Park.

Inter are preparing to receive a renewed bid from PSG’s end for Skriniar by the end of the transfer window. Expecting that, they are already shortlisting candidates to onboard at the Giuseppe Meazza – three to be precise.

Apart from Akanji, Lazio outcast Francesco Acerbi is a keen target, at least for coach Simone Inzaghi who wishes to reunite with him after their time together at the Stadio Olimpico. Milan target Japhet Tanganga is also touted to be in Inter’s crosshairs.
