Inter will extend the contract of defender Federico Dimarco by the end of the year, according to Italian media.

This from today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri are all set to offer the 24-year-old a renewal and will do so in the coming weeks.

Dimarco has impressed this season for the Nerazzurri since his return from a two-season loan at Hellas Verona during the summer.

The defender has established himself as a regular in Simone Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri team, and the club want to secure his long-term future given his new-found status in the team.

To this end, the player and club are close to agreeing on a new deal that will take Dimarco until the end of June 2026 at the Nerazzurri.

The agreement is in place and the new contract is in the pipeline, and should be announced at some point before the new year.
