Inter would be willing to pay €7 million for Lazio striker Felipe Caicedo, according to a report from Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today.
The report details how the Nerazzurri are looking for reliable backup to Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, with his strong physical qualities and finishing in the box being key attributes for Antonio Conte’s side.
Caicedo fits this profile and has attracted the attention of the Milanese club, who are now prepared to pay €7 million for his signature, the report continues.
First, Inter must sell Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, as their financial situation is unstable currently and they cannot afford to invest in incoming transfers without first earning from outgoing transfers.
Should this transfer go through, then Lazio would look to sign a left back, as they are not fully convinced that Senad Lulic will be able to reach his top condition.
Options include Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko, who would cost around €15-18 million, as well as Club Brugge’s Federico Ricca.
