Inter officials have begun to plan the summer market and have started to take stock of several “outcast” players that could be sold to bring transfer window funds.

According to Italian outlet, La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter is preparing “Operation Rake”. The Nerazzurri have a list of players out on loan that could potentially be offloaded in the summer to build a small sum of money to be put towards signing a high-level forward.

Unlike the previous summers, the club does not plan to sell a big name unless a “mega offer” is made and rather would like to sell several smaller names in order to generate funds for use throughout the transfer window. Names such as Nicolò Barella, Lautaro Martìnez, Alessandro Bastoni and more are not expected to leave the club. Inter has already secured two free agent signings in Mehdi Taremi and Piotr Zieliński, but with the new FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Champions League formats, the club will be looking to do more business when the summer transfer window opens.

According to Gazzetta, this is the list of loan players Inter would be willing to part ways with:

  • Joaquin Correa, 29, €10M
  • Andrei Radu, 26, €8M
  • Martín Satriano, 23, €5M
  • Gaetano Oristanio, 21, €4M (buy-back worth €6M)
  • Sebastiano Esposito, 21, €7M
  • Lucien Agoumé, 22, €8M (buy-back worth €16M)
  • Zinho Vanheusden, 24, €7M
  • Eddie Salcedo, 22, ???
  • Mattia Zanotti, 21, ???

For other loanees who are showing greater potential, such as Filip Stanković and Francesco Pio Esposito, a “Fabbian-style” operation could be ideal- this would mean selling the players outright but retaining a buy-back clause for the future. However, Gazzetta claims Inter could loan Stanković to a Serie A club next season.

The one loan player the club is willing to take a chance on is Valentín Carboni. An important bid was rejected in the January transfer window for the Argentine teenager and this could be a sign for the future.

Between all these names, Inter could generate around €10-20M to be put towards signing a new attacker to play alongside Lautaro Martínez, Marcus Thuram and Mehdi Taremi.
