Newcastle United could face more competition in the reported pursuit of Jordan Veretout, as Calciomercato claim Inter Milan have been offered the Roma star for a summer transfer.
An agent has now approached San Siro club to offer the Frenchman’s services alongside Simone Inzaghi. The Nerazzurri are on the lookout for new midfielders this summer to add fresh ideas to areas they currently lack, alongside Marcelo Brozovic.
Inzaghi has a number of midfielders to draw from at the reigning Serie A champions. But the club are keen to continue bolstering who to call after struggling to find a first choice for the game with Brozovic. With the Croatian, he has used seven different stars so far this tenure.
Agents looking to capitalize on Inter Milan’s search for midfielders have suggested Roma ace Veretout as an option in recent weeks. They have also reached out to AC Milan to discuss a summer move after falling out of favor at the Stadio Olimpico under Jose Mourinho.
Inter Milan now offered the chance to sign Newcastle target Veretout from Roma
Inter or AC Milan, who are investigating Veretout’s situation at Roma with a view to a summer transfer, could deal a blow to Newcastle in their pursuit. Calciomercato reported earlier this month that the Toon are one of three clubs presenting themselves as contenders, along with Napoli and Marseille.
Marseille have already tried to buy the 29-year-old by offering €8m (£6.5m) but have to pay €16m (£13.5m) apiece Calciomercato. So the three-way race could turn into a five-way if one of the Milan teams tosses their hat in the ring for the Ancenis-born technician.
Despite falling out of favor in recent months, Veretout, whom Eddie Howe has wanted to sign since 2015, has scored four goals and provided nine assists so far this season. Although his last goal came in the sixth week of Serie A season before 23 goalless games in the Italian top division.
