Inter Milan leading the race for Exequiel Palacios
River Plate star Exequiel Palacios is a target for Inter in the summer transfer window.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Inter Milan are leading the race for River Plate midfielder Exequiel Palacios.
The 20-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
This season, Palacios has scored one goal and provided 4 assists in 16 appearances for River Plate.
The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Argentina.
Exequiel Palacios has represented Argentina at Under-17 level, winning 10 caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in September 2018. As a member of Argentina national football team, Palacios won two caps.
Inter Milan have built a reputation for recruiting young talents, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The report claims that Inter Milan have extensively scouted Exequiel Palacios and are considering a move for the midfielder.
Exequiel Palacios would provide a good variety to Inter Milan’s midfield.
According to Football Italia, “Inter have become the favourites for River Plate midfielder Exequiel Palacios after Real Madrid cooled their interest. It had been a bidding war between the two clubs for the 20-year-old talent. However, according to Spanish paper Marca, the €50m purchase of Eder Militao from FC Porto has postponed other big investments for the time being. Inter have every intention of taking advantage and Vice-President Javier Zanetti has reportedly been working behind the scenes to put them in pole position. Despite his tender age, Palacios already has two senior caps for Argentina. He is currently out of action following a fractured fibula last month, but is expected back in June.”
