Inter Offered Lyon Star, Keep Pursuing Tigre Starlet

Inter intend to retool their frontline next summer, but they won’t have a large budget to do so, therefore they are weighing some free agents, such as for instance Moussa Dembelé, who has been recently tendered to them, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The 26-year-old will be out of contract in June following a lengthy run with Olympique Lyonnais. He also spent half a season with Atletico Madrid in the recent past. He has logged 3 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions in 2022/2023.

Inter pay attention to all proposals, but they are lukewarm on Dembelé, as they prefer other options, especially Marcus Thuram and Mateo Retegui. The former seems headed elsewhere, but they will be in the race until he announces his decision.

As for the Italian Argentine, the Nerazzurri are in pole position to bring him to Serie A. However, they won’t take their pursuit to the next level until they decide on Romelu Lukaku, who just had his best performance of the season, La Gazzetta dello Sport relays. He’ll head back to Chelsea after his loan spell. The Italian outfit will inquire about the conditions to bring him back before moving for other options.

Our Take on Inter, Dembelé, and Retegui

Their plans will be up in the air until they know where they’ll end up in the standings and make the call on the Belgian star. The Lyon striker hasn’t had a great campaign, but he’s a seasoned striker, and there are worse ways to round out your attack. Instead, the youngster shouldn’t be considered an alternative to Lukaku, as he’d need time to settle in.
