Despite (or possibly because of) Frank De Boer’s late arrival to the San Siro, Inter is still looking to make major moves in the transfer market even though the Serie A season starts in less than a week. The midfield looks like the highest priority, with a deal for Joao Mario imminent and a possibility of Wolfsburg’s Luiz Gustavo still arriving as well. All these buys means somebody will likely have to leave, and we can rest assured that at least we won’t pull a Napoli and sell to the devil.
With current signs indicating that Mauro Icardi will stick around, Marcelo Brozović looks like the best candidate to be sold in order to help balance the accounts. The 23 year old has attracted interest from Juventus, and there are even some reports suggesting that some of his representatives have already met officials from the ‘ole prison stripes’. Fortunately club president Erick Thohir seems to have learned his lesson from the Guarin-Vucinic mess and the club’s current position is that any move to the Bianconeri will be swiftly blocked.
There are other options for the Croatian midfielder though. There have been some links to a move to either Arsenal or Liverpool, with the latter seeming more likely at this time. There are some reports suggesting that Inter could revive old interest in Lucas Leiva (probably if the move for Gustavo fails), and those talks could see the two midfielders switch clubs.
