It seems that Inter will have to take a step back to allow Nicolas Pépé to join Bayern Munich. On Monday, the German club is ready to make decisive steps for the Lille talent in an operation worth €70M and he will be the heir of Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben. Inter, as well as Arsenal and Paris Saint Germain, were interested in the Ivorian striker but without making a decisive push for him because of the very high transfer cost.
If Pépé is indeed going to Bayern, he would create a domino effect on Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa. The Bavarians would retreat on the Italian talent, leaving Inter some breathing room to start negotiation with Fiorentina.
Be ready for an Italian derby with Juventus as Giuseppe Marotta is ready to challenge his pupil Fabio Paratici for the winger who is the big dream for both of these clubs. The Old Lady made the first moves and so they are ahead but Inter are still right there in the race. The club of Suning would offer the player a leading role in this squad as he would start under Luciano Spalletti and possibly Antonio Conte on the bench this summer.
In Turin on the other hand, competition is crowded which could slow down the growth of the 1997-born talent in the year leading up to Euro 2020. The cost is astronomical: €80M. Both Inter and Juventus would like to lower it through the inclusion of a couple players (Yann Karamoh and Federico Dimarco for Inter, Riccardo Orsolini for Juventus).
