Pirelli chief executive Marco Tronchetti has urged Inter Milan to secure the services of RB Leipzig star Timo Werner and Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.

With reports suggesting Inter forward Lautaro Martinez might seek pastures new in the next transfer window, Tronchetti believes the Nerazzurri should be looking for replacements.

Argentina international Martinez continues to be constantly linked with Barca and rumours claim the LaLiga giants see the 22-year-old as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.

However, Tronchetti is convinced Inter will be stronger with PSG's Cavani, 33, and Liverpool target Werner.

"For example, we left Inter with a 'regista' who was supposed to change the team in [Christian] Eriksen," Tronchetti told Gr Parlamento.

"Cavani's been able to do extraordinary things and I hope he can repeat them in Nerazzurro. In Serie A there are other expert players, above all Cristiano Ronaldo, who are proving to be great champions. Age is not a limit, he [Cavani] can be a good choice.

"It's clear that selling Lautaro would hurt, but with Cavani and Werner we could be stronger than with Lautaro and [Mauro] Icardi, especially if Eriksen returns to his Tottenham form."

Werner scored a hat-trick for RB Leipzig in their 5-0 triumph over Mainz in the Bundesliga on Sunday, meaning he has hit the target 30 times in 38 appearances this season.

PSG's Cavani – who is set to be a free agent this summer has been linked with Atletico Madrid and a few clubs in the MLS.
