Inter Repel Chelsea Late Attempt to Sign Midfield Ace

Chelsea will be one team to watch on deadline day, as they are in the market for a midfielder after agreeing to send Jorginho to Arsenal. The Blues got in touch with Inter to inquire about Nicolò Barella, but they didn’t find an opening. The Nerazzurri won’t let go of their star with no time to substitute him, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The Pensioners continue to chase after Enzo Fernandez, but they have so far failed to boil down a deal, although there are still a few hours left in the transfer window.

While Barella won’t leave Inter, PSG continue to lurk for Milan Skriniar. According to L’Equipe, president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is in Italy to try to seal the deal. However, the Nerazzurri want a replacement before okaying his departure. They don’t have one in hand as of now.

Per Sportitalia, Atalanta demanded €25M through the formula of a loan with obligation to buy to part ways with Merih Demiral. He’s top of the list for La Beneamata, but they won’t offer that much. There have also been contacts with Stuttgart’s Konstantinos Mavropanos, but his arrival is equally challenging, Mediaset relays. Nottingham Forest is also interested in the Turkish defender.

Our Take on Inter, Barella, and Skriniar

It doesn’t hurt to try, but the Italian midfield is as untouchable as it gets. Chelsea should just activate Enzo Fernandez’s release clause since they have no cash problems. Instead, it looks like the Skriniar affair will go down the wire. Chances are he won’t move and finish the season in Milan, but you never know.
