Inter Milan have reportedly identified the Brescia midfielder Sandro Tonali as their top priority for the upcoming transfer window, reports in Italy say
Antonio Conte has already secured three midfield additions to his Inter side during his first year at the Giuseppe Meazza, as he brought in Nicolo Barella, Stefano Sensi, and Christian Eriksen.
However, one of Matias Vecino and Roberto Gagliardini is expected to be shipped out this summer, while Borja Valero’s contract also runs out at the end of the season.
Therefore, Inter will have to reshape their midfield department and have set their sights on Brescia’s Sandro Tonali, according to the Tuttosport, as relayed by the Sempreinter.
Conte sees the 20-year-old deep-lying playmaker as a missing piece in Inter’s jigsaw and will try to beat Juventus and other European sides to the highly-rated youngster’s signature.

Widely considered as the most exciting prospect in Italy, Tonali has enjoyed an outstanding Serie A breakthrough, racking up a goal and five assists in his first season in Italy’s top-tier.
Although his playing style bears much resemblance to Andrea Pirlo, the Italian starlet would also add a strong physical presence to Conte’s midfield.
Brescia have slapped a €50m price tag on their prized asset’s head, but since they are likely to end up returning to Serie B, they may be forced to drop their demands.
Inter will reportedly wait for that scenario to happen and then try to put pressure on Le Rondinelle to accept their two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy.
