Inter look at Cunha and David as Cavani alternatives

Inter are considering several names to replace Mauro Icardi, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for €50m on Sunday.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb), the Nerazzurri continue to monitor Edinson Cavani‘s situation.

Cavani, 33, is out of contract at PSG in June and is high on Antonio Conte’s wishlist.

Inter have offered ‘El Matador’ a two-year contract worth €7.5m-per-season, but Cavani has no intention of reducing his €12m salary so much.

Cavani would be willing to sacrifice some of his wages but only to €10m-per-season, still too much for Inter.

Nerazzurri have other ideas

With the brakes currently on any move for Cavani, Inter are looking at several alternatives.

Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic, also wanted by Inter’s neighbours AC Milan, is a name they like, but again his €10m-per-salary is a problem.

The other names are Hertha Berlin forward Matheus Cunha and Canadian prodigy Jonathan David of Gent.

21-year-old Cunha has been in lightning form for Hertha with four goals in his last five appearances.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old David has netted 23 goals in 40 appearances for Gent, putting top European clubs on alert.
