Inter intend to keep Uruguayan midfielder Matias Vecino at the Giuseppe Meazza for next season, according to reports.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport report that Simone Inzaghi admires the 29-year-old’s style of play and plans to rely on him next season with the player having evidently put his injury struggles behind him.

Vecino’s future at the San Siro has been up in there air due to his injury troubles last season, which kept him from playing a significant role in the Nerazzurri’s scudetto triumph under Antonio Conte.

However, the midfielder is back to full strength and is in Uruguay’s Copa America squad, demonstrating his fitness.

Inzaghi is thought to have called Vecino to let him know that the Uruguayan is in his plans for next season, and with the health scare experienced by Christian Eriksen on Saturday it appears even clearer that Vecino will be relied on next season.

Vecino has an athletic and energetic profile which will be important in making the incoming Inter manager’s tactical system function in midfield.

It is thought that if an attractive enough offer arrives for the player – for example from Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli, Inter would consider his sale, but only in the case of an exceptional proposal as they feel that the player is an important part of their plans going forward.
