Federico Dimarco could remain at Inter next season regardless of a possible arrival on the left side of the squad.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi could keep the 23-year-old in the squad even if a left-wing-back is brought in, with Mnachester United’s Alex Tells linked.

Dimarco returned to the Nerazzurri this summer after a successful loan spell with Hellas Verona, and the player’s future has not been immediately clear, with a number of clubs reportedly interested in his signature but the Nerazzurri also considering making him a member of the first-team squad for next season.

The club are thought to be targeting a left-sided player after the departure of Ashley Young and with Ivan Perisic’s sale also a possibility, but this does not mean that Dimarco would necessarily leave should a player in the position be brought in.

Dimarco is liked by the club for his versatility, with the Italian able to fill in on both the left side of a back three and in the wing-back role.

One potential arrival on the left is Telles, who has already spent one season on loan with the Nerazzurri during the 2015-16 season and could arrive on loan from Manchester United where he is out of favour.

Should United be willing to send the player to Inter on loan with an option to buy the Nerazzurri will consider bringing him in, but they will not push for him should the English club not be amenable to such a formula.
