Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin claims that although Inter wish to sign midfielder Nahitan Nandez from Cagliari, they will not be including his compatriot Matias Vecino as part of any deal for him.

Biasin took to his official Twitter account claiming that “Nandez is considered a good player [by Inter] but under no circumstances will the club include Vecino as part of any negotiations.”

He continues that “Inzaghi has already spoken with Vecino and confirmed that he considers him an important player at Inter.”

The news clarifies what incoming manager Simone Inzaghi’s plans for the squad will likely look like, and show that after a frustrating season in which the 29-year-old’s appearances were limited by injuries, Vecino may still have an important role to play for Inter.

Matias Vecino spent half a season on loan with Cagliari when he was a Fiorentina player, though he only made nine appearances in all competitions.

The Uruguayan international midfielder joined Inter in the summer of 2017 in a deal worth reportedly €20 million, and has since made 104 appearances and scored 12 goals for the Nerazzurri in all competitions under head coaches Luciano Spalletti and Antonio Conte.
