San Lorenzo planning to sell Inter and Leeds target Gaich

San Lorenzo striker Adolfo Gaich is one of many emerging Argentine talents and could be on his way to Europe.

Gaich, 21, has been linked with a move to the old continent in recent weeks, with Inter, Leeds and West Brom mentioned.

A 6’3″ (1.9m) forward, Gaich’s size and technique have won him comparisons to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robert Lewandowski.

San Lorenzo have a release clause of around €13.5m in his contract, but the price could be lowered.

Speaking to FCInterNews, Diego Delledonne, a manager at San Lorenzo, said the club plans to sell Gaich.

“Gaich’s clause is $15m [€13.5m]. And it is totally negotiable,” Delledonne said. “Our president has excellent relations with [Javier] Zanetti.

“We don’t want to loan him – our idea is to sell the player in this transfer window.

“Is he ready for top clubs like Inter? Gaich has the right qualities and age to be part of any team.”

Inter’s striker hunt

Inter have sold Mauro Icardi to PSG and Lautaro Martinez could still join Barcelona, despite the clubs having no agreement.

Therefore, the Nezzazzuri have their eyes on a number of strikers, including Edinson Cavani of PSG.

Cavani’s salary is a major obstacle for Inter, so they are also looking at younger, less proven talent.

Hertha Berlin forward Matheus Cunha and Canadian prodigy Jonathan David of Gent are two names the Serie A club have eyes on.

And Gaich, who won his first Argentina cap last September, is also on Inter’s list of transfer targets.

Championship high-flyers West Brom and Leeds, both primed for promotion to the Premier League, are also interested in Gaich.
