Iceland and Genoa forward Albert Guðmundsson has been one of Serie A’s breakout stars this season, scoring twelve goals and registering four assists across all competitions so far.

In recent weeks, Inter has decided that the addition of Mehdi Taremi as a free agent will not be enough for the attack next season. The likes of Marko Arnautović and Alexis Sánchez have wildly underperformed this season and there is the possibility that neither of the forwards remain at the club past the summer.

Inter has been linked to names such as Joshua Zirkzee and Ciro Immobile as of late, but the newest is Genoa and Iceland forward, Albert Guðmundsson, according to Italian outlet, La Gazzetta dello Sport. Coming off a successful season in Serie B with Genoa, the 26-year-old has carried his good form into Serie A as I Rossoblù find themselves mid-table after 29 rounds. 

Juventus in Serie A and several Premier League clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, are all interested in Guðmundsson, but it is Inter who are clearly in front, as Gazzetta writes. The Nerazzurri have “informed themselves and are aware of everything that revolves around the forward”. Furthermore, Inter has learned that Guðmundsson will definitely leave Genoa this summer and the club has a €30M valuation.

The club’s plan is to jump past the competition and meet with the entourage of the player in the next weeks and then with Genoa themselves. Despite top clubs also holding an interest in Guðmundsson, Inter is not afraid and could propose a “Frattesi-style” operation: an expensive loan with the obligation to buy the following season.
