Inter eyeing move for Leeds United left-back Junior Firpo

The upcoming summer will see Inter improving their defensive department. According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Inter are eyeing move for Leeds United left-back Junior Firpo.

Inter Milan

Leeds United reportedly paid Barcelona 15 million euros for Junior Firpo in 2021. The 26-year-old has a valid contract with Leeds until June 2024.

He has featured in 15 matches this term, netting two goals and providing one assist in all competitions.

The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best football players in Dominican Republic.

His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Inter are looking to sign a left-back and have identified the 26-year-old as potential transfer target. The Dominican Republic international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Simone Inzaghi wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Someone with Firpo’s skillset and potential will no doubt be an excellent signing for Inter boss.

The former Barcelona man has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Leeds United will sell Junior Firpo for a modest fee if they are relegated at the end of this season. The Whites are among many teams staring relegation in the face in the Premier League at present. Inter Live states that Firpo is a target for the Italian giants in the summer transfer window. They are hoping that if Leeds go down, Firpo will be available for as little as €10 million. A deal would be much harder to do if Leeds were to stay up under recently installed boss Javi Gracia. They would then demand a higher fee for the 26-year-old, who does want to move on to play European football.”

Inter will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Junior Firpo to join the club.

Good signing for Inter?

If Junior Firpo is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Inter.

Firpo will be an ideal choice for Simone Inzaghi as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his defenders.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit at San Siro Stadium.

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