It is understood that Inter are close to signing Gabrieles Angella from the Siena outfit on a season-long loan, with the Nerazzurri looking to secure the right-back’s services for a €7 million fee.

It is understood the Nerazurri are in advanced talks with Fiorentina over the defender, who is currently on international duty with Italy.

The Bianconeri have not signed a new player this summer and have already loaned out midfielder Marco Materazzi and striker Simone Zaza this season.

However, there are some indications that Inter may be preparing to cash in on Angella, who could also feature for the Nerzina squad in the coming weeks.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have offered the defender €7m, with a fee of around €4.5m likely to be necessary to secure his services.

The Nerazirre have also made several loan offers to Napoli this summer, including one to former Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero, who has also been linked with Inter.
