Inter Improve Offer for Scamacca, Identify Fallback

Inter have slightly raised their offer after coming up empty-handed in their first try for Gianluca Scamacca. The counterparty demands €30M as a fixed fee, while the Nerazzurri have gotten to €24M plus €8M add-ons, Sky informs.

The Irons continue to drive a hard bargain considering they signed the Italian striker only a year ago for a hefty sum and because Atalanta are showing strong interest as well. He has given his priority to transferring to Milan but would consider La Dea if they come to terms.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter resumed considering alternatives to Scamacca, also to put pressure on West Ham. Udinese’s Beto is the main plan B. They’d target him concretely if they couldn’t close the gap in the talks with the Premier League outfit.

Per Calciomercato, the London-based outfit has opened talks with Spezia to onboard M’Bala Nzola, who has been pursued by a few Serie A sides this summer.

Our Take on Inter, Scamacca, and Beto

While they are almost the same age, there’s more upside in signing the former. The difference between offer and request doesn’t seem insurmountable, but Atalanta are well-armed with cash. It’s shaping up to be a war of attrition. The Portuguese is very much available and more affordable after Udinese signed Brenner and Lorenzo Lucca.
