Inter Interested in RB Salzburg and Udinese Defenders

Inter would be fine continuing with the same defense but would be ready to pounce if there were an opportunity and have earmarked Jaka Bijol and Oumar Solet. Francesco Acerbi and Stefan De Vrij aren’t getting any younger and both have been banged up at times in the last two campaigns, La Gazzetta dello Sport points out.

The Udinese center-back looked fine after recovering from a stress fracture in his foot. He has two Serie A campaigns under his belt. The Bianconeri acquired him from Spartak Moscow for €4M. His valuation is €15/20M now. He has accumulated 58 appearances and tallied 3 goals and 2 assists in Friuli. He’d be a more feasible target if his side accepted makeweights in return.

Solet will be more affordable than Bijol, but a few more sides on top of Inter are eyeing him. He has been linked with a move to Italy a few times in the past. He’s 24 but has already starred in the Champions League. He can play in multiple roles in the back. In addition, his price tag is kept in check by a short-term contract.

The new Oaktree ownership would like the front office to go after youngsters.

Our Take on Inter, Solet, and Bijol

Their director Piero Ausilio stated they would stand pat in the back and have Carlos Augusto operate as Alessandro Bastoni’s backup, filling their only clear hole there. Still, the ex-Monza star is much better on the wing. Somebody like the French talent, preferably left-footed, would be a welcome addition.
