Inter are in constant contact with Bayern Munich as they hope to conclude the deal for goalkeeper Yann Sommer within the next 48 hours.
The Nerazzurri are currently without a first-team goalkeeper following the sale of Andre Onana to Manchester United and the departure of Samir Handanovic on a free transfer. Sommer has long been identified as Inter’s first-choice option, but Bayern Munich weren’t keen to give the green light to a move until he found a replacement, and has recently been linked with Brentford’s David Raya. La Gazzetta dello Sport details how a flurry of emails and phone calls bounced between AC Milan,Munich and Tokyo yesterday as Inter pushed to finalize Sommer’s transfer with Bayern. The Nerazzurri are prepared to pay around €4-4.5 million for the Swiss keeper, which is less than his €6 million release clause, and have already verbally agreed the terms of a two-year contract with an option for a third.
