With Lukaku bound for Turin, Inter has turned to Dzeko and Cavani.
According to Corriere Dello Sport Inter president Steven Zhang has been forced to look elsewhere.
Newly appointed Inter manager Antonio Conte made no secret who his preferred choice of striker was.
However, Juventus have jumped the queue in the race for Romelu Lukaku. They appear to have struck up a Dybala Lukaku swap deal.
That leaves the Nerazzurri still trying to offload Icardi and appease the wishes of Conte.
They believe a striking partnership of Edinson Cavani and Edin Dzeko is the solution to their problem.
They have come in for staunch criticism from fans due to the lack of activity. In what is deemed as penny-pinching instead of getting the deals done.
Inter have had a 15 million Euro offer rejected for Dzeko. Roma is rumoured to want 20 million. The player in the last year of his contract and already rejected a new one.
Cavanni may be a little harder prospect. He has a rather eye-watering 10 million a year plus bonuses contract he has in Paris.
They appear confident in getting both deals done. It remains to be seen if they will get anything done after the Lukaku debacle and the protracted Icardi out transaction.
Paris Saint Germain have not commented about Canvani leaving. Roma will not let Dzeko leave unless they have a replacement lined up.
Both players coming towards the end of their contracts. Both players are on the wrong side of 30.
There has been the talk of both Dzeko and Cavani holding out for one final lucrative contract. In China!
