Valentino Lazaro seems destined to return to Inter at the end of the season, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Gazzetta.it revealed the Nerazzurri were hoping to raise transfer funds by selling off some unwanted players out on loan.
Lazaro is on a season-long loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, with the Bundesliga side boasting an option to make the move permanent for €12 million.
They are not expected to exercise that option though, not least because the club’s transfer budget will be reduced if they fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League (which seems certain, with Marco Rose’s side 11 points adrift of fourth place).
Marco Rose’s successor as head coach is one variable which could change the scenario regarding Lazaro, but the Milan-based paper seemed to suggest the Austrian would probably head back to Inter.
Lazaro’s agent last week revealed the 25-year-old is keen to have another attempt at succeeding under Antonio Conte, although no talks have been held with Inter or Borussia Monchengladbach yet.
Elsewhere, Inter are also expecting to welcome Dalbert back in the summer after the Brazilian’s unsuccessful loan stint with Rennes.
The Ligue 1 outfit can make Dalbert’s move permanent for €12.5 million but there is no sign of them wanting to do this.
