According to a rumor in today’s Italian media, Real Madrid might make an effort to buy Edin Dzeko from Inter this summer as a backup to Karim Benzema. The Bosnian attacker had not appeared close to leaving Inter this summer, according to Tuttosport, but his future has been cast into doubt due to the fast-developing transfer
scenario. Given Inter’s refusal to trade Lautaro Martinez and their desire to pursue both Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku, the Nerazzurri have an abundance of attackers. Edin Dzeko is unlikely to get much action in that side, and Real Madrid, the Spanish and European champions, have expressed interest. Karim Benzema requires some reinforcements. Juventus is also in contention for the same reason. They want extra depth in that area, someone who can cycle with Dusan Vlahovic and help him reach his full potential.
