Inter Scout Salernitana Star Ahead of Summer Window

Some Inter emissaries were in the stands for the recent match between Empoli and Salernitana to watch Boulaye Dia. The striker is set to be bought out for €12M by Salernitana after a loan spell from Villarreal. The Nerazzurri like him a lot, but his valuation might be too pricey for them, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The Granata will attempt to keep Senegalese in the summer, but he will draw attention and offers from multiple clubs. He has been linked to Milan and Napoli, but Fiorentina have been the busiest Serie A side on the subject lately, the publication relays.

Despite his price tag, Inter would have a potential trump card if they decided to go after Dia. Lorenzo Pirola has fared well at Salernitana, which are considering redeeming him for €5M. La Beneamata could still bring him back for €13M thanks to a clause.

The Nerazzurri haven’t made a decision on the center-back, as the sum is sizeable, but it’s possible they’ll keep him since they don’t have many options in the role. However, they might decide to orchestrate a larger deal with the Granata, adjusting the various prices.

Our Take on Inter, Dia, and Pirola

It’s routine to monitor everybody, and Empoli have some players of interest too. Other than Mateo Retegui and Marcus Thuram, he’s the first striker they have been linked to. Romelu Lukaku’s late surge, plus his desire to stay, could be enough to convince the brass to try arranging his return if Chelsea agreed and the terms were similar to his present loan. The young defender improved steadily and would be ready to come in as a backup for Alessandro Bastoni.
