Inter Plot Moves on the Flanks, Still Interested in Chelsea Fullback

Emerson Palmieri remains on Inter radar even though his former coach Antonio Conte bolted. The Chelsea man, who has considerably fallen out of favor this year, is the top choice for the left wing for new gaffer Simone Inzaghi as well. The club has reached out to his agents to understand the feasibility and the conditions of the possible deal, Sky Sport report.

The Nerazzurri will continue to use 3-5-2, and Emerson has familiarity with the position. Ivan Perisic found his stride as the season progressed, but he could be a victim of the team’s cost-cutting measures since he has a rich salary. Ashley Young is on an expiring contract and is likely to move back to the Premier League in the summer.

On the right wing, instead, Inter have so far rejected the offers coming from PSG for Achraf Hakimi and the two sides are about €10M apart. However, he seems destined to move to the French outfit as soon as they will raise their bid. The player has already started discussing the contract even though his agent downplayed the rumors.

As a possible replacement, the Beneamata is tracking Nahitan Nandez, who consistently played in that role since Leonardo Semplici was appointed. Cagliari want Radja Nainggolan back, and the two clubs could arrange a swap involving also some Inter youngsters. However, the two midfielders have very different wages and evaluations, which makes the negotiation challenging. Roma and Leeds are also pursuing the Uruguayan international, who is poised to move to a bigger team this summer, reports.
