Latest: we have been linked to the other son of Thuram,

Khéphren Thuram


3 goals and 2 assists at only 21 years old playing as DM
Quite tall 1.91 cm - problem is the contract has been recenly extended by Nice.

Linked again by Calciomercato.com along with Empoli’s Kristjan Asllani & Bologna’s Jerdy Schouten:
Inter have identified Nice midfielder Kephren Thuram as a major candidate to be signed as a backup to Marcelo Brozovic going into next season.

The Nerazzurri are increasingly convinced that the 21-year-old could be the right solution to bolster their squad in central areas.

Thuram’s form has been rapidly improving throughout this season, and this has attracted significant transfer interest with the Nerazzurri among his major suitors.

The midfielder would have the right profile to give the team a genuine deputy to Marcelo Brozovic, something that they have struggled with this season.

The Frenchman’s form has meant, however, that his valuation has also increased, and it remains to be seen whether the Nerazzurri would be ready to make the investment in him.

Meanwhile, Empoli’s Kristjan Asllani remains a consideration for the role although the Tuscans would like to keep him another season, while Bologna’s Jerdy Schouten is also on Inter’s list.
Looks like we are looking at affordable options for this position. LOAN + option to buy offers incoming.

Just read that the asking price set by Bologna for Schouten is 15M. :yao:

Don`t forget about Nahitan Nández (who rejected Juventus this winter!).
Stefano Capozucca, Cagliari's sporting director, also spoke of Nahitan Nandez's failure to transfer in January:
"Nandez was not convinced to go on loan with the right of redemption. The transfer to Juventus was skipped, but certainly not our fault. He said he did not want to feel under scrutiny. Nandez is convinced he can play in a top club in Europe. Now he is in Cagliari and he is very happy to be here with us, we really appreciate this attitude. Roma have never asked us for him."

Tuttosport writes that Nahitan Nández would join Inter in a hurry and he can cover all midfield roles. Nandez could be back in the game in the absence of better opportunities.

" Cagliari paid the highest amount in their history for Nandez, now they want to recover at least that amount. Napoli have made a concrete offer, in the past also Inter but now not. And then Juventus were the closest in the last transfer market. Now the most important thing is that you recover from the injury, then you don't need to explain who Nahitan is. Nahitan is a lion and will soon end up in a big team. " - Pablo Bentancur, agent of Nahitan Nandez
Reminder: Cagliari payed €16.2M for Nahitan Nández back in 2019.

Meanwhile FIFA Court has just announced that Cagliari have to pay 2M + interest towards Boca Juniors. Cagliari have 45 days to pay the verdict. In the event of non-payment, they risk not being able to carry out transactions in the next three transfer market sessions.
I still hope Cagliari get relegated and we can sign him on our terms.

PS: There were also links in the past to Lecce`s dane DM #42 Morten Hjulmand. He currently has 3 assists in 37 Serie B matches.

Nandez does not even start for a team fighting to avoid relegation. How good could he be for Inter?

Nandez looks like another Medel to me. Rather I'd try to get Maxi Lopez or RDP on loan.
He`s much more capable than Medel {who is just a pitbull}. Nandez was the 1st alterntive to Denzel for the RM role. BTW Dumfries seems to be on the shopping list of Bayern.

Until Denzel is here you can relax, as everyone reported that our main midfield reinforcement target is Frattesi.

No chance you're signing Thuram on loan with option. If he leaves Nice in the summer, it will probably be for over 20m.
Oh Nice, the club that fooled Inter so badly with Dalbert [€21M for a player now worth €2.5M]. I mean they are entitled to ask, given his current stats.
Thuram as a DM has scored more goals for them than Justin Kluivert!

He was injured and now injured again. He has no interest in playing for Cagliari any more. He would be a great addition for a club like Inter, problem is the transfer fee Cagliari are seeking to recoup while Inter being forced to generate funds.

This guy was converted as a wingback and even there he's not impressive. He didn't give all for Cagliari, because he thinks he deserves a better team and requires transfer, and in addition he has injury related issues. If Nandez is our top replacement of Dumfries, this is some new level of retardation by Inter.

Too good to be true. Also i can't see De Paul coming to Inter to be a squad player and i certainly wouldn't start him over any of our midfielders.
Believe in our genius Morotta )

Pauly De could come to be a rotational option ie. play in place of Hakan or Barella. That we way would not have to overplay these guys.

Correa - Pauly De loan swap, what do you say Simeone?

I'd rather have a Correa - Correa swap.

Angel Correa is someone who deserves much more playing time than he is currently getting.

He can play even as SS, although these days he is used mainly like CM.

i dont understand why some people highly underrate Nandez. he is a valuable player to have. he covers many roles in midfield and certainly a better player than Vecino and Gagliardini. he will add more pace and aggressiveness. tactically sufficient and experienced.

i hope we send Cagliari to serie B this weekend and sign Nandez in easier deal.
