Antonio Conte is still not certain to have Ivan Perisic available when Inter visit Napoli on Sunday, according to a leading Italian broadcaster tonight.
Sky Sport Italia (via FcInter1908.it) said the Nerazzurri would have to monitor the Croatian’s condition carefully as he recovered from a muscular problem sustained on international duty.
Perisic was due to return to full training at Appiano Gentile today, as per reports earlier this week, but it seems this did not happen.
Arturo Vidal is also not guaranteed to make a recovery for the match at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, having been out for a month after undergoing knee surgery.
Inter will once again have their first-choice back three available for the game against the Partenopei, having reunited Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni against Cagliari.
Nicolo Barella will return from suspension in midfield, while Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are virtually certain to start up front.
Alexis Sanchez started against Cagliari but he will drop back to the bench this weekend.
