Inter focuses on Cavani as Mertens chooses Napoli stay

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.
