Inter may need to wait for Gonzalo Higuain to join Roma before they can complete a deal for Edin Dzeko, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Talks for the Bosnian have been on hold for weeks after the clubs came close to reaching an agreement near the end of June.
Roma’s rigidity on their €20 million asking price is thought to be in part because they do not have a replacement lined up.
Securing a deal for Higuain, whom Juventus are keen to offload, might encourage the Giallorossi to be more flexible in negotiations with Inter.
Antonio Conte wants Inter to sign Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku as quickly as possible, not least because he has very few first-team forwards to work with in Asia.
It remains to be seen whether the Nerazzurri’s head coach is prepared to wait for deals elsewhere to fall into place, before Dzeko arrives in Milan.
Inter face Manchester United in the International Champions Cup on Saturday, having flown out to Singapore yesterday.

Inter will soon make Manchester United a new offer for Romelu Lukaku which could rise to €75 million, according to Tuttosport.
The Nerazzurri are aware the striker is worth €60 million to United at the moment, taking amortisation into account, and will offer that exact fee plus €15 million in bonuses.
Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio have not travelled to Singapore with the first team because they are staying to work on the offer they will present to United.
Antonio Conte is desperate to start working with Lukaku as soon as possible and it has convinced Inter to push ahead in talks without selling Mauro Icardi first.
Tuttosport assured ‘any day could be good’ for the next formal contact between the clubs, after Ausilio went to London to meet United officials last week.
United want more than the £79 million they paid to sign Lukaku from Everton in 2017 – almost €88 million – but it is ‘unthinkable’ Inter could reach that fee.
“This offer could represent a good starting point to reach an agreement in short order, though,” Tuttosport concluded.

Mauro Icardi will wait another three weeks for Juventus to make him an offer before considering a move to Napoli, according to Sport Mediaset.
The Bianconeri have not made either official or unofficial contact with Inter so far, safe in the knowledge Icardi’s price tag is dropping with each day that passes.
However, if they do not make their move before 10 August Icardi will stop giving them priority and begin talks with the Partneopei.
Aurelio De Laurentiis is willing to offer Inter €60 million and give Icardi a salary worth €7.5 million per season, which could rise to €10 million with bonuses.
Icardi has been excluded from Inter’s preseason tour in Asia and will train alone at Appiano Gentile until Antonio Conte’s side return.
The 26-year-old could even stay under contract with Inter and spend the next two years in the stands, but it remains extremely difficult to imagine that happening.
Juventus remain the favourites to sign the Argentine but Napoli have not given up and will stay alert until they have no chance.

Juventus are preparing to make their move for Mauro Icardi in the final two weeks of August, Tuttosport reported this morning.
The Bianconeri remain the clear favourites to sign Inter’s former captain and are staying in contact with the forward’s entourage in the meantime.
Napoli represent the Old Lady’s only competition in Italy, but they would have to complete a big sale before making Inter an offer.
“The feeling is that, unless another club arrives and snatches Icardi away with a big offer, everything is in place for Juventus to sign Icardi in the week after Ferragosto (15 August),” the paper reported.
Juventus may also need to complete some sales before moving for Icardi, with Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic currently occupying two spots in their forward department.
“They’ll need a lot of patience and they need to hope no surprises arrive from clubs abroad,” the Turin-based publication concluded.
Icardi has been excluded from Inter’s preseason tour of Asia and will train alone at Appiano Gentile until they return to Milan.

Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio will stay in Italy until Sunday before jetting off for Inter’s preseason tour in Asia, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The first team flew out to Singapore with Antonio Conte yesterday as they prepared for Saturday’s first prestige fixture against Manchester United.
Marotta and Ausilio have stayed behind to continue transfer business, however, and will not join up with Conte and his players until they move to Nanjing at the weekend.
Talks for Romelu Lukaku could enter a decisive phase soon while Edin Dzeko remains another important target in attack.
Inter’s squad is not due to pay a visit to Suning’s headquarters in Nanjing when they fly there to play Juventus in the International Champions Cup.
Suning owner Zhang Jindong is almost certain to attend the match itself, though, which takes place next Wednesday at 13:30 CET.
Alessandro Antonello and Inter’s head of marketing Luca Danovaro were also aboard the plane taking the players to Singapore yesterday, and they will use the next week to strike up fresh sponsorship deals.
Inter have brought almost every member of staff who speaks Chinese with them, in an attempt to facilitate the various corporate events they will fulfill in Singapore, Nanjing and Macau.

Mauro Icardi is stuck in a confusing transfer triangle at present with Gonzalo Higuain and Edin Dzeko, as Gazzetta dello Sport explained this morning.
All three strikers are expected to leave their respective clubs this summer, but none of them have a clear path to their next destination.
Juventus want to ‘starve’ Inter by waiting as long as possible and making their move at the last minute, thus ensuring Icardi can be secured for a very cheap fee.
Beppe Marotta, meanwhile, has halted talks with Roma for Dzeko in an attempt to block any possibility of Juve sending Gonzalo Higuain to the capital.
Inter are focusing on Romelu Lukaku for the moment as they know Dzeko has entered the final year of his Roma contract, weakening the Giallorossi’s bargaining position.
Dzeko is not keen on the prospect of joining Inter on a free transfer next summer, though, like the Nerazzurri have threatened they might do.
The Bosnian also has interest from China and rumours have circled suggesting he would like to release himself from the ‘moral commitment’ made to Inter.
Gazzetta assured this was only ‘a small hiccup’ in a much bigger puzzle, though, where fresh traps and red herrings are cropping up every day.
The paper also raised a question mark about where Wanda Nara had disappeared to, having taken her mind off the transfer market in recent days.
“The only thing we know for sure is that the market closes on 2 September, but the turning point could arrive at any moment,” they concluded.

Karamoh lascia nuovamente l’Inter, stavolta per unirsi al Parma: è stato ceduto ai gialloblù in prestito.
Inter are in talks with their sister club Jiangsu Suning to sell defender Joao Miranda, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The Brazilian is no longer part of the Nerazzurri’s plans for this season, despite telling reporters last month he would be keen to see out the final year of his contract.
Antonio Conte did not mention Miranda when naming the defenders he had at his disposal during his first press conference last weekend.
The 34-year-old has yet to agree personal terms with Jiangsu, though, and time is running out with the Chinese window set to close on 31 July.
Inter also want to sell Joao Mario and Dalbert before the new Serie A campaign begins on 24 August.
Mario has interest from Monaco, who are coached by his former Sporting Lisbon boss Leonardo Jardim, while Lyon remain keen on securing a deal for the full-back.
Neither club is close to a deal at present but their interest is worth bearing in mind as the market continues.
