Inter eyeing move for Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori


defender Ramiro Funes Mori has emerged as a surprise target for Inter Milan in the summer transfer window.

According to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media (FC Inter News), Inter Milan are eyeing move for Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori.

The Argentina international was signed by Everton in September 2015 from River Plate for a fee of 12.8 million euros. The 26-year-old has a valid contract with Everton until June 2020.

Funes Mori has played 63 times for Everton since signing from River Plate, scoring 5 goals and creating 3 assists in that time.

The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best defenders in Argentina.

The Argentina international has been in fine form for Everton last season.

As a member of Argentina national football team, Funes Mori has won 19 caps and has scored one goal.

Adding a defender remains Inter Milan’s top priority this summer and Luciano Spalletti will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.

The Argentina international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Luciano Spalletti wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Luciano Spalletti will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Everton defender is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.

Inter Milan are in the market for just a handful of statement signings this summer who can improve the first-team.

Everton are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defender, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

How strong that interest is and whether Inter Milan will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
