It's their obsession of getting Lukaku. They could have gone for Openda who went for 42m or they could have gone for Scamacca sooner and without the Hojlund deal, Atalanta wouldn't have been able to swoop in.
But they were correct to do it. Sorry, but Lukaku is better than Scammaca. He can deliver 2-3 decent seasons in Italy. The management obviously didn't know that he is negotiating with Jube as well. For 35+5mln Lukaku was the best deal out there, and it's quite normal that Inter wanted to get him.

För a reasonable price (nothing more than 15m) I wouldn't mind Taremi. On a two year contract would not be that bad.

Such a shame it came to these names though lol

we gonna do this now day to day, increasing the price by 500k, until Tottenham comes in a week and offers 30M and takes him.

Yea that's your opinion which is fine. I'd rather go for Openda or even Dia for cheaper. Scammaca cost like what? 25m+5 plus cheaper salary too, like significantly cheaper. All these talk about Lukaku willing to lower his salary was all bullshit.

You still have 10m-15m to spend on other positions too.

The sad reality is that there isn't any realistic name, under 30 years, that scores ~20 goals a season for the price of ~35m.

If I think more about our situation, we were more than happy to pay 30/40m for Lakaka, who is a "30 year old striker", so maybe 25/30m for Taremi isn't that crazy, but it's a bit worrisome the fact he hasn't played in a big league... I can't turn a blind eye to that, and crucify Balogun for the same reason :D

Idk I'm just a guy who willingly let's a club decide his mood for the next 10 months.

Every year.

För the last 27/8 years.

Is scoring 20+ goals in portuguese league really that impressive? Since J.Mario scored 17, and we all know he was trash here. We could have gone for Nzola for half that price, and we already know he was good enough in Serie A. I hope this is not true, i'd rather have Correa and Esposito as 3rd and 4th option and spend the money on rcb.

You're not wrong...

I'd rather we get Pinamonti back tbh, but it will be a very comical situation...

Spending 25-30M with 5M gross wage for 31yo player with 1 year in contract is the last thing I wouldve expected from this Inter. Wtf.

Last year Taremi was probably worth over €50 million. His final year of contract is what makes him affordable to Inter.

It depends on what the club is looking for. Are they looking for someone who is just good enough for Serie A or also someone that can be good enough for the Champions League? Taremi does have experience in the CL and scored 5 goals last season. I guess another thing management may like is that he has consecutive seasons with double digits goals and assists.

Nzola was decent last season, but he also scored a grand total of 2 Serie A goals in 2021/2022 season which is pretty terrible. Also, last season 9 of his 13 goals were in the first 18 matches of the season. That means he scored 4 goals in the next 20 matches. He didn't play all the matches but he seems to get injured quite often as well - 23 matches missed in last 3 season - it doesn't seem that bad on the surface but Inter also play a lot more matches than Spezia. Maybe he's an injury prone player.

Correa and Esposito as 3rd/4th option is so risky - it could potentially mean we have 2 out of 4 strikers that may contribute nothing over an entire season.

Don't have one.

He ain't wrong, though. If you would to rank the leagues with the most inflated prices for players relative to their objective quality, then portuguese league would surely be the number one.

I agree, but saying "He was worth 50M" sounds like we are getting a bargain here.

Spending 30M for a 31yo FW that never played in the top 4 leagues is an idiotic thing to do, especially when our financial situation is bed. Its almost stupid as spendinf 31M for a FW that never scored double figures in his entire career.

And in both cases, Marotta and AID are in charge.
