Inter Management and Coach Diverge on Their New Striker

Inter are zeroing in on Folarin Balogun after Atalanta stole Gianluca Scamacca from under their nose, but Simone Inzaghi prefers adding a pure no.9. They had two last season, Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, among the available options, the coach favors Mehdi Taremi and Alvaro Morata. Signing two strikers would be ideal, but it would come at a hefty cost and could happen only if they sold Joquin Correa outright. He has drawn inquiries from Saudi Arabia and not a concrete offer yet. Instead, some European clubs have asked for him on loan.

Inter are ready to spend a pretty penny for Balogun, while the ownership isn’t inclined to pay a lot for veterans. Porto demanded over €20M when Milan tried to lure the Iranian. Instead, the Spaniard has a €21M release clause and sizeable wages.

According to TuttoSport, Le Beneamata intend to offer €25/30M for the USMNT starlet. It might not be enough, as Arsenal set a €35/40M price tag. He wasn’t part of the match-day squad list for the Community Shield.

Our Take on Inter, Balogun, Morata, and Taremi

Both ways of thinking are correct, as they do need a physical option, but it’s better to invest in youngsters. The solution is to find one that marries the two aspects, as Scamacca would have.
