The recent grueling stretch of matches has exposed the fact that Inter do not have adequate backups in the midfield. Nicolò Barella has looked gassed, while there is no proper replacement for Marcelo Brozovic. The Nerazzurri will try to correct the issue in the summer, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
They will likely have to bring in multiple players as the future of their current secondary options is highly uncertain. Matias Vecino is on an expiring contract and will almost certainly depart. Lazio have approached him for a potential Bosman move, Tuttomercatoweb informs. Arturo Vidal is not fully content with his role, and the team will look to shed his big salary off the books. He has drawn robust interest from South America. Roberto Gagliardini could easily be the only man standing beside the regulars.
Inter have been extensively linked with Davide Frattesi, but they will probably need multiple signings in the midfield. They are attempting to get him from Sassuolo in a packaged deal with Gianluca Scamacca. The Nerazzurri will assess Lucien Agoumé, who has been faring well during his loan spell at Brest.
They could go after Gonzalo Villar again, the publication adds. They tried to sign him in January, but he transferred to Getafe, although only temporarily. Inter are also keeping tabs on Morten Hjulmand as a potential cheap addition to the midfield. The 22-year-old has turned heads during the last calendar year at Lecce. He has impressed the scouts of multiple teams with his physicality and passing skills.
