Federico Dimarco is increasingly likely to be an Inter player again next season, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition said Inter were busy negotiating the full-back’s return from Hellas Verona when his loan deal expires in the summer.

Hellas Verona have an option to sign Dimarco permanently but it seems they might not use it, despite the 23-year-old’s impressive season with Ivan Juric’s side.

Inter could send goalkeeper Andrei Radu to the Gialloblu as part of an agreement for Dimarco, with their current keeper Marco Silvestri receiving interest from several top clubs.

Dimarco had the chance to work under Antonio Conte last season before moving to Hellas Verona in the January transfer window in 2020.

Conte was likely to be impressed with his development under Juric this year, the Milan-based paper suggested, where Dimarco has played with great personality and even adapted to playing in a back three at times.

Dimarco has scored five goals and provided five assists for Hellas Verona so far this season.
