Then, within a year or two, that keeper can take over from former Bayern Munich and Borussia Monchengladbach keeper Sommer, inheriting the starting spot in the long term. Athletico Paranaense and Brazil keeper Bento had been a major target for Inter.

But according to the report, the Nerazzurri have abandoned their pursuit of the Brazilian. Therefore, the Nerazzurri have moved on to Genoa’s Martinez. According to Tuttosport, the negotiations between Inter and Genoa regarding Martinez have moved forward very rapidly. Genoa’s valuation of Martinez is around €18 million.
