Matias Vecino could be on his way out from Inter this summer, with the player wanted by Napoli.
This according to Italian journalist Marco Barzaghi, stated in an interview with Italian broadcaster Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli that the Uruguayan could seek a new challenge and the Partenopei would be a probable destination if he leaves.
Vecino is liked by new Inter boss Simone Inzaghi, who would like to keep in the squad as a part of his plans for the upcoming season.
However, the player has another admirer in newly-appointed Napoli head coach Luciano Spalletti, with whom he worked for two seasons when the Italian was in charge of Inter.
Napoli are thought to be interested in Vecino as they look for a midfielder in the summer, and should the player ask to leave the Nerazzurri he could be on his way to reunite with his former manager in Naples.
As Barzaghi explained, “Matias Vecino is one of those players that Luciano Spalletti has always liked. He could ask him for his Napoli side, since he doesn’t have much space in Inter. I remember when he coached the Nerazzurri team, he always held him in high regard, we often talked about the Uruguayan’s role in the eleven at his disposal.”
He continued, “Matias Vecino has asked the Nerazzurri management to seek a new challenge. We will see what the club will decide in view of the next season. The sale to Napoli could be a solution, even if at the moment Simone Inzaghi is talking to the boy and trying to secure him a role in the team in view of next year. I know he would like to leave, but if that happens it will only be on Inter’s conditions.”
