Inter are now concentrating their efforts on Edinson Cavani after Dries Mertens opted to stay at Napoli.
Cavani is also available on a free transfer but, unlike Mertens, Paris Saint-Germain have not opened talks to renew the striker’s contract.
However, given his different profile to the Belgian, sources explains he would form part of a new-look Nerazzurri attack.
That is because Lautaro Martinez could join Barcelona, Alexis Sanchez will return to Manchester United and Sebastiano Esposito is set to be loaned out.
The 33-year-old, for his part, has been replaced in PSG’s front line by Mauro Icardi this season, and the Inter loanee looks like making his stay permanent.
For a deal to happen, Il Corriere warns Inter must see off competition from Atletico Madrid.
It is thought Atletico could offer him closer to his current €18m salary, but the Beneamata are almost certain to be able to offer Champions League football.
