With 6 goals in 15 games, Marco Benassi is confirming himself among the best midfielders in the Italian league. And also because of this, Inter have set its sight on the Fiorentina midfielder who made his debut in the city of Milan, the black and blue side. The Nerazzurri, however, could only offer loan with option to buy this month as this is the only formula that would allow Inter to include Benassi in the UEFA Europa League squad list. It is difficult to see Fiorentina accepting this offer because they would lose a starter mid-season for nothing.
Tuttosport reports that Inter could have in hand some cards to play. The first is Karamoh. The 20-year-old French winger is a profile that Corvino (Fiorentina director) likes very much. He actually asked for Karamoh last summer on loan but nothing happened then. At the end of the season, the Frenchman will return to Inter and a straight swap could happen. This deal would work perfectly for Fiorentina which are looking to replace Chiesa.
Antonio Candreva will surely leave Inter at the end of the season, provided that an interesting offer does not arrive in January. The Italian winger is a second card that Inter could put on the table for Benassi. Third option is Gagliardini. The midfielder did well with Pioli when he was the coach of Inter. At the end of the season, the former Atalanta midfielder will surely evaluate options for the future. The obstacle in these two cases is wage, in particular Candreva who makes more than €3M per season.
