But we ain't gonna buy striker for over 40m. Unless we sell Thuram, which isn't an unthinkable scenario unfortunately.
Why you must draw a specific line between 30+ and 40m as unsurpassable? Why not 10 or 20?

The point is if we will have enough for Gudmunsson/Raspadori we should be able to afford Zirkzee too. Not that big difference in price but big in quality.

Selling Thuram or Primaveras is another story, must be done in either cases regardless.

I'm not convinced with Gudmundsson let alone for 30m, but I 100% trust Marotta's team on this. There's no way they're spending that amount of money on some mid-table player
Correa says hello.

Why? We have limited resources. My opinion at this point is we can't buy Gudmundsson or Raspadori with pure cash without a big sale.

But with Gudmundsson, we can insert younger players into the deal and lower the cash part to the level we might be able to get him. With Zirkzee, the price remains still so high so that most probably can't be done.

I don't think "insert youngsters" and "sell youngsters for cash" make any difference nowadays. The latter takes longer ofc, but that's it. Our directors are paid millions to care those timings.

Juve has been banned from European competitions for fake plusvalenza. Nobody dares doing that again.

We are sacrificing them at exactly how high their values are in Gudmundsson deal. Better cash in elsewhere.

If we include youngsters it usually is with some sort of buy back clause

I think it makes a lot of difference.

Small clubs do not have actual euros to buy these young players for valuations we can pump them to in "swap" deals. Juve's fake plusvalenzan shenanigans were another animal.

Same for selling, no?!? Fabbian was going as Samardzic cash chip; but ending up sold to Bologna with buyback clause too.

I don't see replacing Thuram with Gudmunson+cash, or even Gudmunson+Raspadori to work well for us.

Where is Thuram next destination? Did he already leave Inter?

I think people realise we need to sell to finance our market, there really isn’t many of our players that has the market value to do so alone, it all boils down to Martinez, Barella, Bastoni and all others will likely call for more than one to be sold.

Neither Frattesi, Bisseck, Buchanan, Augusto, Hakan nor Asllani has that sort of market value, and few of them won’t likely create any real gain.

Dimarco, Pavard, Thuram is likely somewhere in between the two groups. Thuram is largely preferable because he is 100% gain and I could Imagine many prefer to lose him over any of the 3 In the first group.

That said I think there is a higher probability for one of those 3 to actually be sold, as demand simply is higher. I just don’t see who would actually be interested in Thuram.

We can’t really know, there is a championship this summer and it can turn everything upside down.

For now we're upgrading on Sanchez. If one of the starting forwards gets sold, then Zirkzee could be an option.
Am I the only one who doesn’t really see it with him Gudmundsson?

Seems like a decent player but I’m not quite sure I see an Inter level player.
Was anyone convinced Correa will be Inter level when he was signed for 30M? Most of us knew he was not. But G-son seems to have different mentality.

What we think or want is not relevant. We're just spectators / commentators here.

The club wants to trade with Genoa because of good relations and creative deals in Inter's favour. Like Cafe wrote - it's just convenient. Financial limitation is the reason.

What is interesting to me there are these Gudmundsson and Raspadori rumors in the first place. Taremi is already booked so the rumor mongers are already considering we're still going to sign a forward. Meaning we try to dump Arnautovic out, or would he stay as 5th striker (heavy salary for that role)?

Could be also we're just doing preparation work for the case a big offer arrives for some of our players.

Corriere dello Sport via TMW details how Inter are interested in picking up Raspadori from Napoli in the summer, believing his tactical flexibility could prove invaluable for Inzaghi’s two-striker system.

After winning the Scudetto last season, the 24-year-old Italian striker has struggled to put together a convincing campaign this term, managing just five goals and three assists in 39 appearances across all competitions.

Raspadori is contracted to Napoli to June 2028 and is expected to cost at least €30-40m in the coming summer transfer window.
Raspadori is probably just a smokescreen to G-son and to force Genoa lower price.

Given Arna's performances, he might be relegated to last in the pecking order, or he can leave.

Toro / Thuram / Taremi / Gson / Arna seems pretty solid. But we all know it's gonna be Correa..

I don't think us targeting another player makes Genoa to lower their price for their player they want to keep. :D

Raspadori's cost cannot be anywhere close to 40m€ given what he has shown at Napoli. Since it isn't much. I mean, sure if Napoli takes makeweights back like I assume Genoa will do.
