Inter Milan handed Yann Sommer boost as Bayern Munich pursue David Raya

Inter Milan have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who has been identified as a replacement for Andre Onana.

The deal had hit a standstill due to Inter’s reluctance to pay Sommer’s €6 million release clause, although the Nerazzurri have agreed personal terms with the keeper on a two-year deal until 2025.

The Swiss keeper remains keen on a move to San Siro and has also informed Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel of his decision.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Bayern have set their sights on Brentford shot-stopper David Raya, which would facilitate Sommer’s move to Inter.

The Bavarians were previously linked with Valencia keeper Giorgi Mamardashvili but were forced to give up the deal due to the Georgian’s significant transfer fee.

With Alexander Nubel set for a move to VfB Stuttgart, the Bundesliga champions are looking to bring Raya to Allianz Arena.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has also revealed that the Spanish keeper could be on his way out this summer, with Mark Flekken signed as his replacement.

Raya is expected to play second fiddle to Manuel Neuer, who is likely to retain his first-team spot when he completes recovery from a long-term leg injury.

Inter are planning to add another keeper to their squad besides Sommer, with Shakhtar Donetsk’s Anatoliy Trubin heavily linked with a move to the San Siro.

Signing a striker is also one of the primary objectives this summer, with Inter lining up Alvaro Morata, Folarin Balogun and Gianluca Scamacca as potential targets.
