Inter have two players in mind to reinforce their left wing-back position ahead of next season, according to an Italian media report today. said Emerson Palmieri and Federico Dimarco were the main options being considered by the Nerazzurri to replace Ashley Young, who will leave when his contract expires in the summer.

Emerson would represent a perfect ‘low-cost’ option for Antonio Conte, the report explained, with the Italian-Brazilian only having one year left on his contract at Chelsea.

He is also said to be perfect for Conte’s 3-5-2 system at Inter, having played as a wing-back both for Chelsea and Roma in recent seasons.

Dimarco’s situation at Hellas Verona is more complex, but the Milan-based paper assured that Inter had not discarded the idea of giving him another chance with Conte’s first team.

Hellas Verona can make Dimarco’s loan move permanent at the end of this season for €6.5 million, but Inter have the chance to re-sign him by exercising a counter-option for €10 million.

If Inter choose not to use the option, they would be guaranteed 50% of any future transfer fee the Gialloblu received for Dimarco.

The 23-year-old continues to dream of a return to his boyhood club though, with the report suggesting he could even return to Inter immediately in the summer without Hellas Verona buying him first (described as a more ‘romantic’ scenario).
