It certainly wouldn’t be a bad get for the Nerazzurri, but is the price too high?
While Juventus, Arsenal and Chelsea are apparently keeping an eye on him, it is Inter that have looked to put money on a deal. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Luciano Spalletti is looking at €35 million plus … and you’ll love this … either Gianluca Caprari or Éder.
Viola boss Stefano Pioli is likely Éder, but Caprari will likely be the player involved in the deal as he returns from a loan stint with Pescara.
Bernardeschi has reportedly stated he prefers a move to Juventus, but two things make that unlikely: 1. Fiorentina would try everything not to sell to their rivals and, 2. Juventus would not necessarily spend up to €50 million on a player that they really don’t need. And €50 million is what the Viola are apparently asking for.
While is market value is around €30 million, Fiorentina would be parting with their second-leading goal scorer from this season. Bernardeschi found the back of the net 11 times in 32 games this past season.
There is a benefit for Bernardeschi coming to Internazionale. The first is obvious … playing time. He would be a good complement to Joao Mário I the midfield and could provide a nice attacking option in the midfield if Éver Banega goes.
The extra playing time could prove beneficial as Bernardeschi is currently with the U-21s and is battling for a spot on Italy’s 2018 World Cup team.
