According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter will soon send an offer for Genoa striker Albert Gudmundsson, while Tuttosport claims Juventus are in advanced talks with the striker’s entourage and Tottenham inquired about the 26-year-old a few weeks ago.

Genoa striker Gudmundsson will be one of the hottest commodities in the summer transfer window, and Wednesday’s sports papers in Italy report the latest updates on the Iceland international’s future.

According to Gazzetta, Inter are ready to submit an offer, but the Serie A champions must wait for President Steven Zhang to announce a new agreement for a bridge loan with PIMCO and find new clubs for Marko Arnautovic and Joaquin Correa, who are no longer part of their project.

Gudmundsson: Latest updates as Inter, Juventus and Tottenham make their moves

Inter’s idea is to use the ‘Frattesi formula’ to get Gudmundsson, so a loan deal with an obligation to buy and some players included in the agreement.

Genoa’s asking price is around €35m, a fee the Nerazzurri intend to lower by including some footballers Genoa like, such as Mattia Zanotti, currently on loan at FC St. Gallen and Martin Satriano.

As per Tuttosport on page 10, this is precisely the same formula Juventus want to adopt. The report claims Bianconeri director Cristiano Giuntoli is on good terms with Genoa and the striker’s representatives, the Giuffrida brothers.

Genoa have been following Fabio Miretti, Enzo Barrenechea and Tommaso Barbieri who is currently on loan at Pisa and one or more of these players could be included in the deal alongside a cash offer.

Tuttosport confirms Tottenham and Napoli‘s interest in Gudmundsson but claims Spurs only enquired about the striker a few weeks ago. The Turin-based paper reports that Juventus are currently leading the race to sign the Iceland international.
