Mercato: Inter Linked With Handanovic’s Replacement

According to Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport, Inter Milan are already plotting a summer move for Fiorentina goalkeeper Alban Lafont, who joined the Viola from Toulouse over the summer.

This comes as Inter search for a potential long-term replacement for goalkeeper Samir Handanovic who, although is still doing well for Inter now, is 34-years-old and therefore the Slovenian only has a handful of years left in the twilight of his career.

Lafont cost Fiorentina just €7 million plus bonuses, a good deal for a 19-year-old goalkeeper that many consider to be one of the best young goalkeepers in the world.

He made his professional debut for Toulouse in 2015 at the age of 16 and, in 2016, was one of the only two goalkeepers on La Gazzette dello Sport’s list of the best U-20 players in the world; with Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma being the other.
