Inter wish to conclude the acquisition of Yann Sommer before the weekend, but, in the meantime, they have been proposed an alternative, Brazilian goalie Bento. The Nerazzurri like the player, but his acquisition would be pretty pricey. They don’t plan to table an offer for the time being, Sky informs.
The 24-year-old possesses an Italian passport. He’s well known for his ability with his feet, a trait Simone Inzaghi prioritizes. It’s unclear whether La Beneamata would consider him for the backup job. He has starred 119 times with Athletico Paranaense, conceding 129 goals.
While they are unlikely to bid for Bento in the coming days, they have reached a crossroads regarding their pursuit of Sommer. They haven’t activated his €6M release clause to maintain a good relationship with Bayern Munich.
They might soon be forced to, as the negotiation is stalling. The shot-stopper is very keen on the move, as also Thomas Tuchel confirmed. The Bavarians are no closer to signing a new option between the sticks.
Our Take on Inter, Sommer, and Bento
The difference between paying the release clause and agreeing to a lower fee lies more in the payment structure, which would be in one fell swoop in the first case, than in the amount, which would be only slightly higher. They should just go ahead at this point.
