Inter Wouldn’t Mind Alexis Sanchez Finding Another Club

Inter are unlikely to modify their frontline in January because they’d need Alexis Sanches to leave for it to happen. The Chilean veteran hasn’t fared as well as he did at Olympique Marseille last season in his second turn in Milan.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb), the attacker is drawing interest from the United States and Saudi Arabia. A few sides are ready to hand him a sizeable salary. However, he doesn’t seem prone to departing the Nerazzurri again.

Inter haven’t expanded their shortlist and keep focusing on Mehdi Taremi, but he can’t join if Alexis Sanchez doesn’t leave first. The arrival of Tajon Buchanan will occupy one spot for an extra-EU signing. They need a player with the same status to bolt to open up the second and final one.

The Chilean talisman re-joined them in a Bosman transfer last summer and will earn €3M this campaign. He has scored twice in 13 appearances, mostly off the bench, so far.

Our Take on Inter and Alexis Sanchez

There were a few sound reasons to bring him back, considering his previous familiarity with the team and the league, his good showings at his previous stop, and the fact that he was relatively cheap. He hasn’t panned out so far, but it’s hard to ask anybody to be productive while playing with so little continuity. They wouldn’t have a budget to replace him. It’s highly uncertain, if not flat-out improbable, that Porto will just let go of Taremi even though he’s on an expiring contract.
