Federico Dimarco will remain as an Inter player for next season, with the Nerazzurri looking to extend his contract past June 2023 when it currently expires.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the 23-year-old’s agent Beppe Riso was at Inter’s headquarters today where he discussed among other topics Dimarco’s future.

The Italian spent last season on loan at Hellas Verona where he impressed under head coach Ivan Juric, and upon returning to Inter it was not initially certain whether the player would stay or join another club with several Serie A sides interested.

However, the Nerazzurri now look set to keep him in the squad for next season, with the player thought to be a part of manager Simone Inzaghi’s plans.

Moreover, Inter are thought to be ready to offer a contract extension to the player that would extend his contract to June 2024 from its current expiry date and double his wages to around a net of €1 million annually.

The wage increase for Dimarco would not be a budgetary problem for Inter, as he is seen as a direct replacement for the departed Ashley Young, and earns a third of what the now-Aston Villa man did at the Nerazzurri.
