Inter are hoping to agree a contract extension with goalkeeper and captain Samir Handanovic, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Corriere dello Sport (via calciomercato.com) said both the Nerazzurri and Handanovic intended to extend the deal which is currently due to expire in 2022.
Inter will not pursue any talks with Handanovic until the end of the season, with everyone focused for now on securing the Serie A title.
Handanovic was widely criticised during an error-prone first half of the season, but the 36-year-old has since improved his form and produced a series of impressive performances.
Antonio Conte will be relying on Handanovic to deliver again for Inter when they travel to play Napoli on Sunday night.
The Nerazzurri are 11 points clear at the top of Serie A and will be seeking a 12th straight league win when they visit the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Handanovic joined Inter from Udinese in 2012 and has made 382 appearances in all competitions, equalling the tally of Inter’s 198o Serie A title-winning goalkeeper Ivano Bordon last Sunday against Cagliari.
