Inter Milan keep on working to reinforce their offensive line, and, as reported by the Newcastle Chronicle, are the most probable destination for 26 year old attacking midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa, whose contract with the Magpies will expire in June 2015; with the arrival of the France international, the nerazzurri, as highlighted by calciomercato.com, will probably have to sell one between 25 year old Ricardo Alvarez, 24 Rubén Botta and 19 year old Mateo Kovacic, with the last two as main candidates to leave “San Siro”. On the contrary, after the recent good performances, 32 year old striker Rodrigo Palacio, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, will meet next month the Lombard club executives to extend his contract until June 2017. In any case, Inter keep on seeking an executive to replace the former Technical Director Marco Branca, and, according to Il Giorno, the right name could be the one of Tottenham Sports Director Franco Baldini.
Also Serie A defending champions Juventus are working to reinforce their offensive line, and, according to El Mundo Deportivo, are ready to swoop again on Barcelona 25 year old Alexis Sanchez: the Chile international is having some excellent performances at the “camp nou”, but the Catalan club could in any case sell him for about 25 million euros; moreover, an eventual negotiation could be eased by the fact that the agent of the former Udinese player is the same of Juve midfielder Arturo Vidal.
