Federico Dimarco looks increasingly likely to stay at Inter next season, with the club considering him a reliable option on the left side for head coach Simone Inzaghi.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that the Inzaghi and CEO Beppe Marotta think highly of the 23-year-old and would be happy to hand him a major role in the squad going forward.

Dimarco returned from a loan spell with Hellas Verona this summer, and his future at Inter has not been immediately clear, with a number of clubs thought to be interested in him.

However, with the defender having grown as a player at Verona, and with his impressive displays in pre-season and in training, the club are willing to consider him as the replacement for Ashley Young on the left after the Englishman’s departure for Aston Villa, and may not see a need to pursue a the arrival of a replacement.
