Inter Probe Atalanta Starlet amid Delay in Pavard Talks

Inter are cautiously optimistic about onboarding Benjamin Pavard, but they are also seeking fallbacks in case the deal didn’t happen, and they touched base with Atalanta to inquire about Giorgio Scalvini. They lodged the same offer, but La Dea doesn’t want to lose their prodigy so late in the window.

According to SportMediaset (via OneFootball), La Beneamata is willing to put €30M on the table, but the counterparty rejected by demanding €50M to signal their intentions.

On top of Scalvini, Inter are also after Torino’s Perr Schuurs should the Pavard operation fail to go through. Thomas Tuchel spoke on the matter again after the Augsburg game (via Calciomercato).

“He’s not with us due to a back issue. We understand he wants to leave, but you can’t consider only one thing during a transfer. We have to find a replacement first; otherwise, the sale won’t happen.”

Our Take on Inter, Scalvini, and Pavard

The Nerazzurri won’t get the Bergamaschi talent, while Torino could be more pragmatic if the bid gets to certain numbers. Still, the deal is too good for Bayern Munich, as the Frenchman is on an expiring contract. There’s a chance their brass helps them out, either pinpointing a worthy heir or overruling their coach.
