Roberto Gagliardini remains the favourite to complete the Inter midfield for this weekend’s Serie A match at home to Lazio, according to an Italian media report today.
As per Corriere dello Sport, there are some doubts regarding the condition of Arturo Vidal, who picked up an injury in last week’s 2-0 triumph over Fiorentina.
For this reason, former Atalanta player Gagliardini is the favourite to play alongside Nicolo Barella and Marcelo Brozovic in the middle of the park.
The report from the Rome-based news publication goes on to add that Ivan Perisic will come back into the starting line-up, with the Croatian due to replace Matteo Darmian at left-wing back.
Inter versus Lazio is scheduled to kick-off at 20:45 local time on Sunday at San Siro and could prove to be a crucial match in the race for the Serie A title.
Inter’s probable starting line-up vs Lazio (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Gagliardini, Perisic; Lukaku, Lautaro.
