Inter midfielder Roberto Gagliardini will be fit and available for selection against Sampdoria in the Nerazzurri’s first Serie A game back from the international break.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that the 27-year-old has fully recovered from a knee injury and has been training with the rest of the squad in preparation for the Sampdoria trip.

Gagliardini suffered a knee injury a few weeks ago in training, and he has been ruled out of training with the rest of the squad while he recovered from the problem, missing the Nerazzurri’s first two Serie A fixtures of the season against Genoa and Hellas Verona.

However, he looks to be fully recovered and he is training with a view to being fit enough to be available for the Sampdoria clash on September 12.

All three of the Nerazzurri’s starting midfield are currently away on international duty, and Gagliardini’s availability will be welcome to coach Simone Inzaghi as he looks to rotate his squad through a busy period.
