Italian Journalist Luca Marchetti: “Inter & Napoli Not Considering Matias Vecino & Arkadiusz Milik Swap”
Inter central midfielder Matias Vecino being exchanged for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik is not an idea that the clubs are considering according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia journalist Luca Marchetti.
Ahead of the upcoming January transfer window, Inter have been heavily linked with making a move to sign Polish national team forward Milik and many reports have suggested they could acquire him via a swap deal with Matias Vecino’s name being one of the main ones suggested.
However, Marchetti has claimed that upon contacting the clubs, it has become evident that they are not considering swapping the two players.
“We had read about Matias Vecino, for example, but our phone calls with Inter and Napoli did not lead to feedback on this name,” he told Italian radio station Radio Marte, a short time ago.
Asked about the possibility of Stefano Sensi being exchanged for Milik, Marchetti responded: “No. Beyond the injuries, the Nerazzurri focus a lot on the Italian midfielder.”
Marchetti then went on to discuss an Inter player who could potentially be swapped for Milik in out of favour central midfielder Radja Nainggolan.
“Radja Nainggolan, on the other hand, has a similar contract and be more easily traded, because he has to shake off the dust like Milik. It remains to be understood if Nainggolan and Milik would really want to participate in the exchange.”
Milik, who is out of contract at the end of this season, has been completely frozen out by Napoli and has not played whatsoever but this has not stopped Inter from showing an interest in him.
