Inter are working hard in the market to trim their squad and keep FFP compliant as three names look set to leave this month.
As Inter eye Barcelona’s Rafinha, the club is also busy working on player departures in order to downsize this month.
In order to bring in more players such as the Brazilian midfielder, the Nerazzurri must sell or loan players to comply with FFP. The incoming transfers would give manager Luciano Spalletti the boost he needs to challenge for a Champions League spot.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Joao Mario is once again linked to West Ham – the same club he rejected previously.
The deal is set to be a loan with a right to purchase in the summer, with Inter bringing in 1.5m euros for the Portuguese player who also received interest from Spanish outfit Sevilla.
Meanwhile, Gabriel “Gabigol” Barbosa should know definitively if he will return to Santos over the weekend.
The 21-year old striker has reduced his salary in order to push through the loan, with only partial payment, that will see him return to Santos where he spent most of his young career developing into one of South America’s most sought after attacking talents.
Karamoh is another player linked to an exit with Genoa and PSV keenly interested. However, Inter wish to retain the French winger and have rejected their advances outright, putting a halt on any possible move for the time being.
