All five players have been strongly linked with the Nerazzurri and the giants have now confirmed the deals.
“Our finances don’t allow us to spend crazy money right now,” Fassone said. “But we have concluded five interesting signings for next season – Laxalt, Campagnaro, Andreolli, Botta and Icardi.”
Laxalt is an Uruguayan midfielder, born in February 1993, who is currently playing his football with Defensor.
Botta is another midfielder, an Argentine 23-year-old who has impressed with Boca Juniors and Tigre.
Fellow Argentine Icardi will move from Sampdoria. The striker is valued at around the €15m mark by the Marassi outfit.
Campagnaro and Andreolli will be added to the defence and will arrive on Bosman free transfers from Napoli and Chievo respectively.
Fassone was also asked for a comment on rumours that Barcelona were interested in goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
“I wouldn’t rob the squad of a champion like Handanovic, but the president will decide. Anyhow, there is no official offer,” he said.
The Nerazzurro also confirmed that Inter were looking to build their own stadium. “It will happen,” he insisted.
“We’ll soon wrap up the financial stage to convince the president of the project. Three important areas have already been identified and it should all be completed by 2018.”
