Inter were on the brink of signing SPAL defender Mohamed Fares last Summer but injury led to the move collapsing according to a report from transfer market expert Alfredo Pedulla.

Inter and SPAL had a €12 million plus bonuses deal agreed for the Algerian national team full back but as a result of the player getting injured the deal did not take place.

Pedulla goes on to report that Fares is destined to depart the Ferrara based club this Summer with both Fiorentina and Torino interested in signing him.

This season Fares has made just three appearances due to a cruciate ligament injury. In 152 minutes on the field, he has been unable to make any goal contributions.

The 24-year-old is not on Inter’s radar anymore according to reports in the media which have instead linked Inter with the likes of Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri, Barcelona’s Nelson Semedo, Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo and Paris Saint Germain’s Layvin Kurzawa
