The transfer window may be closed until the summer, but by no means have the rumor wizards taken any time off. The latest transfer speculation revolves around Lucien Agoumé, Inter’s 19-year-old French midfielder currently on loan to Spezia and Bayern Munich. Christian Falk of BILD Sport confirmed a FcInterNews.it report that the German champions have an interest in Agoumé.
The Frenchman has impressed under Vicenzo Italiano this season, making nine appearances so far (eight starts). Agoumé, who stands 1.85m/6ft tall, can put in a shift on either side of the ball. His pass completion is 89.2%, he makes 2.13 blocks per ninety minutes and 1.54 interceptions. The youngster would certainly have a place in the Nerazzurri’s midfield rotation next season, especially if finances remain tight and Inter can’t make many signings. But another consequence of Inter’s thin pockets is that Agoumé could potentially be sold to raise funds. How much Bayern are willing to pay for the French midfielder isn’t known, but Inter would be hard-pressed to say no if the financial situation hasn’t been resolved by June. I for one would love seeing Agoumé take a key role at Inter next season. He clearly has the talent to succeed, though if he’s just going to ride the bench or go on loan after loan, then it makes sense to sell and take what we can. Still, it seems like a sale that Inter would regret down the line. But like so many things in the blue side of Milan, it all depends on the new owners and their intentions.
Would you rather keep Agoumé and see what he can offer or sell him in order to buy more established players?
