Inter had Lacazette lined up

It’s reported Inter had already agreed terms with Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in case they sold Mauro Icardi to Napoli.

The Partenopei made a very strong play for Icardi over the summer after losing Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus.

In the end, the offer of €60m plus bonuses was rejected and Icardi is expected to sign a new contract at San Siro.

However, Calciomercato.it claim Inter had already worked out a Plan B, agreeing terms with 25-year-old Lacazette.
