On April 17th, Corriere dello Sport reported that Inter Milan are in West Ham United’s way in signing Edin Dzeko and his situation could be clearer after the weekend.
Another Italian outlet Calciomercato once again talks about the Nerazzurri’s interest in the striker and claims he could be still be in Serie A next season, despite interest from the Hammers.
At San Siro, CEO Giuseppe Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio find the Bosnian’s profile intriguing because of his knowledge and experience in the league.
The former Manchester City man is ‘ready to say yes’ to Inter and prepared to take a take a pay cut to join them over Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
However, the Italian club will have to solve two key problems before bringing him to the club and unless and until it’s sorted out, the deal won’t take shape.
The first problem is Icardi as Dzeko’s future is linked to the Argentina international. If the forward decides to continue at Inter, it could hamper their chances.
The second one is Roma’s demand of €15m.
West Ham, on the other hand, do not have these two problems as they are ready to meet Roma’s asking price as they have ‘moved in a concrete way’ to close Dzeko’s deal ‘as soon as possible’.
It’ll be interesting to see if Pellegrini and his side will be able to convince the striker to join them over Inter.
