At this point I would even loan Scamacca as a rotational option. He can't be worse than the three above.
Calciomercato report that West Ham would not likely accept a bid of anything else than €40-45 million for the 24-year-old. Because:
West Ham paid a €36 million fee to sign the 24-year-old from Sassuolo last summer, which could rise to €42 million including add-ons.
Moreover, a 10% share of any fee from the striker being sold would be owed to the Neroverdi per a clause in the deal with West Ham.

On Firmino:
We aren't gonna get gazumped by an MLS team which was created three years ago and joined the league only just this year, right?

It`s about Lutz:
Usually, Firmino would be considered too old to be a transfer target for St. Louis’ squad. But it is no secret that St. Louis CITY SC sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel has had a close relationship with Firmino.

Pfannenstiel discovered the 31-year-old forward in Brazil and then led the effort to bring him to Hoffenheim where Firmino quickly developed into a star. Furthermore, the club’s assessment is that Firmino is still in his prime and could help the expansion side long-term.

The fact that Firmino is in his prime, however, makes a transfer to MLS, in general, difficult. While St. Louis will try, the understanding is that Firmino would prefer a move within Europe next summer.
Transfemarkt understands that the player’s camp prefers a transfer to Italy where Inter Milan is in the pole position. Should, by some miracle, St. Louis CITY SC team beat out Inter Milan, Firmino would instantly become the most valuable player in MLS.

Don`t extend Dzeko and Lukaku loan. Bring both Firmino and Thuram on a free, probably the best we can hope for with the current finances.

It would be great to sign both Thuram and Firmino also because it would give us flexibility in attack. Thuram can play both as a forward and a left winger while Firmino can play as a false #9/ss and AM.

GdS linked both Milan clubs to New York City-born forward currently on loan from Arsenal

#29 Folarin Balogun

La Gazzetta dello Sport details how Milan are seriously interested in picking up Balogun in the summer, aware that a new striker is needed.

They are not alone in their interest, however, as Inter have also been following Balogun for some time now.
Doubt Arsenal will easily let him go after such a season

Have a feeling Arsenal will let Nketiah go and keep Balogun

They have the same agent anyways

Firmino would be an insane signing. We cannot afford to miss out on him

We can he isn’t the player he was 2-3 seasons ago and will want 5 million. Need cheaper younger options that we can sell to cut our loses if they don’t work out

Also signing anyone on high wages without knowing who our coach next season will be is insane

Our coach next season will most likely be Inzaghi, the fact that some of the fanbase hasn't come to terms with it does not mean that the management will not continue planning accordingly

He's looked great whenever he's played, but Klopp's demands and Liverpool's spending made him look obsolete

Looks like we cannot afford to pay hefty transfer fees so I don't know what realistic cheaper younger options are out there. We can perhaps go for someone like Retegui, but I don't think he'd be much cheaper than Alvarez whom we couldn't afford

It will be so embarassing if we still can't sign Thuram after every other big team wasn't even interested in him. Just sign the damn paper and make it official ffs

If reports are to believed, the only real threats for Thuram are Man Utd and Barcelona. But so far the only concrete offer he has is from Inter.

Personally i mostly fear Barcelona, also because of his dad links with the club. A lot will depend on whether they have money to spend or they will resort to free signings.

Embarrassing? It's up to the player what he wants. Dunno how it's embarrassing for us if he just picks another team. We have limits how much we can offer. And also limits how much Ausilio can lie (or have lied) how great project we have without sounding ridiculous.

Actually our "project" is good for players from abroad who see Inter as a stepping stone. 😉

There is no need for lies, friend.

Our Cup Specialist project can be summarised as follows:
- last season, two trophies
- this season, one trophy so far, still in the running for two more
- next season, with the help of Master Thuram, I project us to win 3+ trophies.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus will make a third attempt to sign West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca in the summer if Dusan Vlahovic or Moise Kean leave.

It would be hilarious if they sell Vlahovic and replace him with Scamacca.

and don't forget to bring his little brother too ! We need extra physical strength in midfield. At least French clubs are not as greedy as Portuguese.
