Inter have joined Fiorentina in their interest in Lazio striker Felipe Caicedo, according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today.
The report details how the Florence based club have been linked with the 32-year-old Ecuadorian striker for some time now, hoping that he can provide them the goals needed to avoid a relegation fight this campaign.
Antonio Conte’s Inter are now also interested in acquiring Caicedo, the report continues, as the 51-year-old Italian coach believes that the Ecuadorian forward would be the perfect backup for Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.
President Claudio Lotito is not keen to sell Caicedo and will only accept an important cash offer, in the region of €6-8 million. Considering the Nerazzurri’s financial restraints in this transfer window, they would need to sell players first before looking to acquire the Biancocelesti forward.
Caicedo has made 13 appearances in Serie A so far this campaign, for a total of 588 minutes. He has netted five goals in that time, despite only starting in six of those games.
