Inter are reportedly considering a double loan deal for Real Madrid fringe duo Luka Jovic and Dani Ceballos ahead of the summer transfer window. According to Tuttosportthe reigning Serie A champions are looking to reinforce their midfield and attacking departments with Los Blancos’ underdogs.
Inter part ways with Arturo Vidal and Matias Vecino at the end of the season. Both players are in the final months of their contracts with Giuseppe Meazza Nerazzurri hesitate to offer them new offers.
Despite the South Americans’ sporadic involvement, Inter can hardly afford to leave head coach Simone Inzaghi few opportunities in midfield ahead of the new season. Hence, the Italians have targeted Ceballos, who has been a marginal figure at Madrid this season.
After two decent loan spells at Arsenal, the Spain midfielder returned to base in the summer hoping to become a regular first-team football challenge at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, Ceballos has hardly played for Carlo Ancelotti’s team this season.
Desperate to get his stuttering career back on track, the ex-Real Betis man is looking for a way out. Inter could offer him more playing time and a loan deal seems possible.
The same goes for the disgraced striker Jovic. The Serb has been at the bottom of the pecking order this season. The former Eintracht Frankfurt goalscorer, who found his first chances in the first team, wants to leave Madrid for a regular season.
Inter could part ways with sought-after striker Lautaro Martinez in the summer. Atletico Madrid and several Premier League clubs are keeping a close eye on the Argentine. His possible exit would leave a significant gap in the front third.
Jovic was an absolute goal machine during his time in the Bundesliga, but he never really got a foothold in La Liga. Real Madrid are ready to leave their forgotten man on loan and Inter are ready to pounce.
