Matias Vecino and Stefano Sensi will be like new signings for Inter during the second half of the season, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
As per Wednesday’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport, Vecino recovered from his long-term knee injury several weeks ago and only needs to regain his match fitness, opening the door for the midfielder to be included in Antonio Conte’s squad for the trip to Udinese on Saturday.
As far as Sensi is concerned, the injury-prone Italy international has proven in recent weeks that he can make a substantial impact off the bench for the Nerazzurri, as shown by his second-half performances against Cagliari, Napoli, Spezia and Crotone.
The former Sassuolo midfielder was due to start in last week’s Coppa Italia match at Fiorentina, which would have been his first start in any competition since September, only to withdraw from Conte’s starting XI after feeling fatigue in his calf during the warm-up.
Sensi did not have any serious injury, despite initial fears, was back in training the following day and has not missed a session since, therefore it is possible he could get another opportunity at the Dacia Arena this weekend.
