Inter Gathering Intel on Udinese and Torino Defenders

Inter have two Serie A options in their crosshairs, Rodrigo Becao and Koffi Djidji, to replenish their defense, which is dealing with major uncertainty. Milan Skriniar, Stefan De Vrij, and Danilo D’Ambrosio are on expiring contracts. Instead, Francesco Acerbi joined from Lazio on loan with option to buy.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, several teams are pursuing the Udinese center-back. His deal is up in 2024. The Friuliani are trying to negotiate a new one to have more leverage in the summer. Everton, West Ham, and even Arsenal could go after him if the situation didn’t change and his price tag was relatively low.

On top of Becao, Inter are keeping tabs on Djidji. He’s tied to Torino only until the end of the season, TuttoSport relays. There have been initial contacts between their executives and his agent. Bristol and Anderlecht are pursuing him as well.

With no progress on an extension, the Granata will consider a January sale rather than lose him for nothing. He has been a full-time starter since Ivan Juric took over. However, they have some youngsters waiting in the wings. In particular, David Zima, while Perr Schuurs and Alessandro Buongiorno play in different roles.

Our Take on Inter Tracking Becao and Djidji

The Nerazzurri need clarity in the back, and the much buzzed-about Skriniar renewal hasn’t come yet. The former is pretty underrated. While he’s not a hot prospect, he has adequate maturity and skills to hold his own in a top team. He’s become a stellar specialist of the right-hand side of the back three, where La Beneamata has its best man, should he stay, though. The Torino defender would just be an okay bench option for cheap.
