Inter Milan have privately accepted defeat in retaining Lautaro Martínez as they expect their star to complete a switch to Barcelona, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Therefore, the Nerazzurri are in the market to find a replacement for the Argentina international.
It’s claimed that Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are on the agenda of Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio.
According to the report, the Frenchman remains on ‘pole’ to replace the South American at the San Siro.
That’s because Lacazette fits with what the Serie A side are looking for, but a potential transfer remains difficult because of the London club’s stance.
Mikel Arteta’s side are in not in favour of letting the 29-year-old leave and signing him wouldn’t be easy for the Italian side due to the current market conditions. Despite all these factors, the Arsenal player still remains on Inter’s list.
Tuttosport reported on Monday that Atlético Madrid’s Álvaro Morata is also included in Inter’s list and this claim has been mentioned in Mundo’s report.
It’s to be noted that Tuttosport’s report also stated Antonio Conte is not convinced with Lacazette, but Mundo haven’t stressed that in today’s newspaper.
Over the past week or so, Mundo have been pushing the Arsenal player towards Inter, even after the Italian media denied the San Siro club’s interest in signing Lacazette.
