Inter, no to Hermoso and Rodriguez. Oaktree in command: three names supported by the ownership

If it’s not clear yet, decide Oaktree. In fact, faced with the need for theInter to find a new defender to fill the void left by Buchanan (out for about 5 months), the new American ownership of the Nerazzurri club has expressly reiterated to the management – writes today’s edition of Allsports – to opt only for young signings, so as to lower the average age of the squad and with low costs to create future value.

No to safe second hand. For this reason, the options for Mario Hermoso and Ricardo Rodriguez have been frozen. Both defenders, the first 29-year-old released by Atlético and the second 31-year-old workaholic from Torino, have been proposed to Inter and also evaluated positively by the directors and coach Simone Inzaghi, but the green Line imposed by Oaktree changes everything and opens up new scenarios. Thus – the Turin newspaper reports – at the top of the list of potential hits three names above all: Pirola, Vasquez and Kiwior.

The reasons. Lorenzo Pirola of Salernitana, who grew up in the Inter youth sector and was sold in 2023 for 5 million, is captain of the Under 21s and has the ambition of remaining in Serie A. For Inter it would be a smart signing, also for the UEFA lists. Regarding the Mexican from Genoa, born in ’98 like the new arrival Josep Martinez, the Nerazzurri are interested. Like the 24-year-old Polish player Jakub Kiwior of Arsenal, despite today’s Gunners are very reluctant to grant a loan, stuck on the request of 25 million euros. The reflections on the next move to be implemented are underway, but from Viale della Liberazione they only look to the future.
