Inter are close to finalising the deal for Greek right back Georgios Vagiannidis, who is currently playing for Panathinaikos, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the 18-year-old Greek full back’s contract expires with Panathinaikos at the end of this season, and so he will be signed on a free transfer. The player was convinced by the move to Milan due to the prospect of immediately being integrated into the first team. The deal is almost fully complete and Inter feel confident of securing his signature soon. The Nerazzurri have been searching hard for new full backs as coach Antonio Conte is only convinced by Ashley Young in the department.

Vagiannidis has made 17 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1238 minutes. In that time, he has scored five goals and provided one assist, scoring and assisting once in his Greek Super League debut.
