Inter could look to include a midfielder as part of a deal for Cagliari’s Nahitan Nandez, with the Rossoblu scrambling to replace the injured Marko Rog.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are weighing up sending Lucien Agoume or Matias Vecino to the Sardinian club as part of wrapping up a deal for Nandez.
Rog recently suffered a recurrence of an ACL injury, and the Croatian could be ruled out for a significant portion of next season as he recovers, and the Rossoblu are evaluating their options to replace him and ensure that they are not light in midfield.
Talks over the future of Nandez are still ongoing, and it is thought that the Nerazzurri have explored including players as part of a player-plus-cash deal already to try and persuade the Rossoblu to part ways with Nandez.
With Rog out, the Rossoblu are likely to bring in a midfielder, and the Nerazzurri have brought up Lucien Agoume and Matias Vecino as players who could arrive in Sardinia to replace Rog as part of a deal to sign Nandez.
Meanwhile, Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan’s move to Cagliai, where he spent the second half of last season on loan, is still expected, although would not be connected to the possible inclusion of another midfielder as part of a Nandez deal.
It remains to be seen whether the Rossoblu would accept Inter’s offer, or what the economic terms of a deal involving either Agoume or Vecino would be, though the Sardinians could be moved by Rog’s situation to consider the possibility.
