Inter Can’t Add a New Striker Without Offloading One

Inter wouldn’t mind signing a new striker to back up Lautaro Martinez and Marko Arnautovic, but they used their January budget for Tajon Buchanan. Alexis Sanchez has been invited to leave by Arturo Vidal due to a lack of game time. Marko Arnautovic snapped out of his dry spell lately but had a shocking performance off the bench versus Bologna.

Per Tuttomercatoweb, the Nerazzurri could zhuzh up their frontline only if the Chilean departed. The recent Middle Eastern offers haven’t enticed him so far. Still, they wouldn’t get much from his exit. They’d have to find somebody with what they’d save on his wages.

According to TuttoSport, Inter could intensify their pursuit of a new striker if they won the Supercoppa. Taking home the trophy would net them €7M. Mehdi Taremi is more of a Bosman target than a January one.

If Sanchez left, the Nerazzurri would likely pursue somebody who’s already familiar with Serie A and has been underutilized so far.

Our Take on Inter Potentially Searching For a New Striker

Rather than the Chilean, who was cheap and hasn’t been that bad, Arnautovic is a problem since they are set to spend nearly €10M to sign him permanently, and he hasn’t lived up to expectations. Even if they somehow open up room and resources for a new man, they are unlikely to add a stud. Their hopes lie on Lautaro Martinez staying healthy and Marcus Thuram recapturing his best form after a so-so stretch.
