Inter are still exploring the possibility of a cash-plus-player deal for Cagliari player Nahitan Nandez, with the Sardinian club especially keen on Matias Vecino, Italian media are claiming.

However, Inter are reticent to part with the Uruguayan according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

Inter have made their interest in Nandez clear for this transfer window, but may have trouble meeting the Rossoblu’s valuation for the player, thought to be around €30 million.

As such, the Nerazzurri have been considering offering players as part of the deal in order to reduce the cash amount necessary to bring Nandez to the Giuseppe Meazza.

Inter midfielder Radja Nainggolan spent the second half of last season on loan at Cagliari and is thought to be offered to the club on a permanent basis.

However, even with Nainggolan’d inclusion in a deal Cagliari would still demand a higher fee than Inter prefer, so the Sardinian club are asking for Nandez’s compatriot Vecino.

At the moment however, Inter consider Vecino a part of their plans for next season, and new head coach Simone Inzaghi is evaluating whether a departure would be possible for the player.

Inter may instead offer 23-year-old defender Federico Dimarco as part of a deal for Nandez, as the player’s value is currently high after a successful loan spell with Hellas Verona.
