Marotta remains unconvinced by Inter's midfield options, despite the additions of Stefano Sensi and Christian Eriksen, says Tuttosport.
As such, he has put De Paul back on his list of transfer targets.
Before Serie A's coronavirus suspension, De Paul had returned to his best form - catching the eye of Marotta and his scouts.
The Argentine's versatility is particularly attractive, with the midfielder also capable of playing as a striker when needed.
Inter believe €35-40m is a realistic valuation for De Paul.
