Inter Reportedly Eyeing Up Young Spanish Defensive Duo

Inter have two Spaniards in their crosshairs, Girona’s Arnau Martinez and Betis’ Alex Perez, to shore up their rearguard for the present and the future. The former joins the list of prospective Denzel Dumfries’ heirs. The Nerazzurri are trying to sort out his contractual situation.

According to Cope (via Tuttomercatoweb), Giuseppe Marotta and co. have been impressed by the fullback in the last few years. He already has 54 La Liga appearances under his belt, in which he hit the net 3 times and provided 6 assists. He wasn’t a full-time starter in the most recent campaign.

Inter are plotting a €5M bid for Arnau Martinez, while the lower sum would be enough for Alex Perez. His contract with Betis lasts only until 2025. He has yet to debut with the first team. The talent would eventually join the Primavera side at first, Relevo informs (via Calciomercato). Roma and Udinese are also keen.

The Nerazzurri might put more emphasis on chasing after prospects, whose value would grow over the years, with Oaktree recently taking over from Suning.

Our Take on Inter, Arnau Martinez, and Alex Perez

The reckoning with Dumfries will have to arrive sooner rather than later. Its outcome will shape their summer. Considering what they have already accomplished on the Bosman market and their deep squad, that would be their only real hole to address; instead, other potential additions will hinge on departures that don’t seem so imminent for now.
