Inter Could Trade Intriguing Youngster for Lazio Loanee Acerbi

Inter want to keep Francesco Acerbi but are not keen to pay Lazio the agreed fee, so may include a talented youngster in a possible swap deal.

The Biancocelesti sent the 35-year-old Italian centre back to Lombardy last summer after his time in Rome ended in a rather toxic and acrimonious fashion. Acerbi linked back up with Simone Inzaghi and has featured regularly for the Nerazzurri this season, making 43 appearances.

Acerbi joined Inter on a loan deal with a €4 million buy option attached, a fee that the Milanese club have no intention of paying in the summer, despite their desire to keep the veteran defender.

As reported by Il Messaggero (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Inter could look to include 20-year-old midfielder Giovanni Fabbian in a possible swap deal for Acerbi.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito is a fan of the talented Italian, who has spent this season in Serie B on loan with Reggina. This season, Fabbian has scored eight goals and provided one assist in 35 league appearances.
