Inter considering sensational double free transfers for next summer
Inter are currently looking at their options for next summer to strengthen some key areas, with Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne and Ajax's Andre Onana both emerging as potential targets.
According to today's print edition of Corriere dello Sport (via SempreInter), if Insigne opts to not sign a contract extension with Napoli, then the Nerazzurri could wait until next summer to bring him in.
Insigne is currently stalling contract talks with Napoli, leading to Inter and several other club to monitor his situation very closely, with the possibility of him being available this summer for a very cheap fee, or else next summer for free, depending on Napoli's transfer strategy.
Right now, Napoli are demanding €30 million for the 30-year-old, which is more than what Inter would consider paying, and the Partenopei are not willing to accept the €15 million plus Alexis Sanchez offer that Inter have offered.
As a result, Inter could be set to wait until the expiration of Insigne's contract and then make a move for him in January in order to get him for free once he leaves Napoli.
Additionally, Inter are also looking to sign Onana from Ajax, who has a contract with the Dutch side until June 2022.
According to a report from Calciomercato.com, the Nerazzurri are in contact with the Cameroonian goalkeeper and his agent in order to finalise a move for him next summer, seeing him as the long-term replacement for Samir Handanovic.
Onana will most likely not sign a new contract with Ajax given his doping issues that have led to him missing out on several months of football, and therefore he could become a free agent next summer.
While several clubs are interested in picking up the 25-year-old for a cheap deal, there are still uncertainties over how he will return to football following his ban, but Inter are determined to sign him, with the Italian side already starting talks with the player and his agent.
Given the numerous players going out of the club, Inter will have to make plenty of moves either this summer or the next in order strengthen and to help build on last season's success, where they finished as winners of the Scudetto.
