Although Tottenham’s Belgian midfielder remains Inter’s number 1 priority for the midfield, the Nerazzurri have a couple of backup plans should that deal go south according to Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
According to the report: ”Dembele remains the primary target, but Inter has a couple of alternatives for their midfield to keep in mind. Functional players in Europe now that Inter will play in the Champions League. Mateo Kovacic is a name from the past and he will be in the spotlight on Sunday, given that his national team Croatia plays the World Cup final in Moscow against France.
“The idea of bringing back Kovacic has been in Ausilio’s head for quite some time now. Inter’s Sporting Director is a great admirer of the Croat, who left Inter three years ago for €35 million plus add-ons. Kovacic left Inter as an unfinished player and now has two Champions League titles, something that has led Real Madrid to set a price tag of €60 million on him. Some time ago Ausilio had the opportunity to talk to the midfielder’s agent and during that talk words like “the best thing for me is to change team” were uttered. The Croatian midfielder is versatile and can cover all roles from regista to trequartista” the newspaper concludes.
