West Ham and Newcastle are interested in Inter Milan full-back Dalbert, according to reports in Italy.
Dalbert was once thought to be a target for the likes of Liverpool back when he played for Nice, but he moved to Inter instead.
His time in Serie A has not been a great success, though, and he spent last season – his third since joining Inter – out on loan at Fiorentina.
The Brazilian full-back made 34 appearances for Fiorentina, but has now returned to Inter. However, he could soon be on the move again.
Newcastle have identified Dalbert as a potential alternative to their main target at left-back, Sassuolo’s Rogerio. However, Dalbert would be more expensive.
Rogerio would cost around €14m, whereas Inter are holding out for €20m for Dalbert.
The defender is not part of Antonio Conte’s plans at San Siro, though, so could look for a new adventure in England.
The Premier League pair have reportedly reached out to intermediaries to see if Dalbert would consider joining them. After rejecting some offers from Turkey, the left-back is looking for a club that will give him plenty of opportunities.
He could even return to Fiorentina, but the Serie A side are unwilling to meet the asking price. Therefore, either West Ham or Newcastle could take advantage.
