On top of completing their attack, Inter are trying to significantly reduce their squad. They may not be able to part ways with Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez, who have very cumbersome salaries. However, they are on the cusp of bidding farewell to a few players.
Valentino Lazaro figures to be the most profitable departure. According to Record, he is an advanced talks to join Benfica on a two-year loan with an €8.5M obligation to buy. He would play alongside another Inter reject, Joao Mario. The Nerazzurri signed him for €22M from Hertha Berlin in 2019, but he did not pan out in Milan. They temporarily shipped him to Newcastle and Borussia Moenchengladbach in the past two seasons.
Andrea Pinamonti has officially joined Empoli yesterday after a campaign as a deep reserve. The Azzurri will pay half of his €4M salary, La Nazione reports. Their other young strikers are also likely to depart. Eddie Salcedo is being pursued by Genoa, his previous club, and Torino, Tuttosport informs. Ivan Juric coached him last year at Verona, with decent results.
Martin Satriano has a few suitors too, Alfredo Pedullà informs. Crotone would like to reunite the Inter Primavera duo with Samuele Mulattieri. But he might stay in Serie A as Cagliari requested him. The Sardinians are in the market for a new striker as they have just officially sent Giovanni Simeone to Verona. Brest are also after the Argentinian center-forward. The French will most likely welcome Lucien Agoumé on loan after he extends his contract, Tuttomercatoweb informs.
