Ausilio contacts Udinese for Widmer.
In the last minutes of yesterday’s game Mancini chose Juan Jesus and not Ranocchia and according to Gazzetta dello sport this is a signal for the mercato. The newspaper reports that there’s an offer from Liverpool for Ranocchia worth 9 million euro’s. Ranocchia is tempted by the offer and is thinking about it because he would mainly want to stay in Italy, with Torino as the main club interested in him. If Ranocchia is to leave, Mancini would want a central defender, but this is mostly if Vidic also leaves. Gazzetta dello sport also reports that Ausilio has made an official request to Udinese for Widmer. The deal could be done if Udinese gets Gnoukouri on a loan to drag down the costs of the deal.
Gnoukouri in Inter’s Widmer bid?
Inter could offer Assane Gnoukouri on loan as part of their bid for Udinese full-back Silvan Widmer, say reports.
Gazzetta dello Sport writes today that the Nerazzurri have already submitted an official bid for the Switzerland international, but Gnoukouri could play a key part.
The 19-year-old has only made one league appearance under Roberto Mancini this season and could move to the Zebrette on loan in order to lower the cost of the deal.
Widmer has made 12 Serie A appearances for Udinese this season and has five senior caps for Switzerland.
