Inter chief Marotta on Lukaku, Dybala deals: We are doing all we can

Inter CEO Beppe Marotta said the club are diving “head first” in their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala.

The duo are heavily linked with moves to San Siro this summer, with the former expected to return on loan deal just 12 months after leaving to join Chelsea and latter joining on a free transfer after his contract at Juventus expired.

Asked about the double deal on Radio 1’s Radio Anch’io, he refused to confirm the deals are done but said the club are doing everything they can: “We are throwing ourselves in head first as soon as the realistic opportunity presented itself to Inter.

“They are personalities that can be really important for us and will do whatever we can do get them. If we can get them, great. If not, we will look for alternatives.”

Inter have also been heavily linked with Torino‘s Gleison Bremer, who was named Serie A’s Best Defender last term and, asked about his club’s reported interest, Marotta said they remain determined to hold on to their current defenders primarily.

Milan Skriniar has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Bremer would likely be targeted as a potential a replacement. Marotta added:  “We will do everything to keep our defenders.

“With regards to him [Bremer], I can say he is a central defender at a top European and global level: we are most certainly interested in the Brazilian.”
