Turkish press is a mess, I would not bother much about what they write until it`s confirmed in Italy by some decent sources.

They have also linked us to central midfielder Miguel Crespo. Fotomac report that the 26-year-old would cost around €10 million to sign from the Istanbul giants.

Ferdi Kadioglu was also linked to Inter by Turkish news outlet A Spor, writing that Fenerbahce have set an asking price of €25 million :LOL:

Shit player, the only thing he has going for him is his workrate which isn't even that great.

Most Turkish media is shit, with Fener media being the worst. The only transfers from Fener that would make sense are Altay on a free as a backup/project GK and Ferdi ~€10m as a RWB option which they wouldn't accept.

Arda Güler is an extremely exciting player, but it's still too early to tell as he hasn't had many chances and is still only 17. He has silky technique and great footballing intelligence, but he seems to lack physicality, effort and a sense of what he should be doing off-the-ball.

i know, but its a rumour page. I said this before. If we only wait for official sources then we can just close this whole section.

You're doing well to share any news you read. Thank you for keeping us updated in a dead period for most Inter related things.

Guarro is good enough. Gazzetta isn't any better to be honest.

Isn't he on outrageous wages? Reallocate those to the Skriniar fund. Screw building a balanced squad. Let's keep our core intact instead.

I still consider Kessié to Inter fantasy but since we`re sharing all kinds of rumours, here you go:

Kessié prioritises return to Italy as agent meets Barcelona
Former Milan midfielder Franck Kessié could leave Barcelona in January and according to reports in Spain, his priority is to return to Italy if he walks out of Camp Nou.

The Ivory Coast International completed a free transfer to Barcelona at the end of his contract in June but is struggling with playing time in his first few months with the Catalans.

Spanish journalist Gerard Romero claims Kessié’s representative has recently met club directors to discuss his client’s future. Transfer expert Matteo Moretto adds that the midfielder’s priority is to return to Italy if he leaves Barcelona in January.

Moretto confirms interest from Napoli and Inter, who had been linked with a January move for Kessié in the last few weeks.

The Italian transfer expert claims Kessié could also receive offers from the Premier League.

Barcelona are currently not considering parting ways with the former Milan and Atalanta midfielder but could allow him to leave for a suitable offer.

It remains to be seen if any of the two Serie A giants will match Barcelona’s demands, given that they appear only to be interested in a loan move with an option to buy.

The midfielder’s salary is also an issue, given that Kessié earns €6m per season in Spain.
LOAN with option to buy is nowadays the favorite type of transfer along with free transfers.

Now that I think about it, would Kessie even start for us?

We need better squad depth in case someone is not available. 6M is too much for a rotational player so he might have to reduce his salary if he wants to join Inter.

His agent shared some details after he met the Catalans’ directors to discuss the midfielder’s future. It seems that Barcelona don`t wish to keep him on the long run:
“In the beginning, Barcelona thought he’d become a replacement for Sergio Busquets. But then, they realised he was not the ‘pivot’ they were looking for, so they used him as a central midfielder (Mezzala),” said Italian journalist Matteo Moretto on YouTube during a live chat with Gerard Romero.

“Kessié can do it, but I think the change of position was an issue,” continued Moretto.

“When Kessié got injured, the club and the player were sad because the lad was playing well and the club saw some improvements.

“Clearly, he hasn’t delivered as much as wanted, but I think that Barcelona or Xavi’s stance has changed and now they are in this situation, so if a good offer arrives, he could be sold.”
Seems like Barca started playing the sweet plusvalenza game: pick up for free and sell for profit :cool:
