Inter midfielder Matias Vecino could leave the club in January, and should this be the case then the club will quickly work to try and bring in Cagliari’s Nahitan Nandez.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 25-year-old is seen as the perfect replacement for Vecino and deputy for Nicolo Barella.
So far this season Vecino has not seen frequent playing time, and the player even spoke openly about feeling that he doesn’t play enough in an interview while on international duty.
The 30-year-old’s current deal is set to expire at the end of June 2022, but he could even depart before then with Genoa seriously interested in his signature as well as several foreign clubs.
Should Vecino depart, fellow Uruguayan Nandez would be the player the Nerazzurri would look to replace him.
Nandez had been a target during the summer but Inter were not able to agree on the terms of a loan with a purchase obligation with his club Cagliari.
An initial loan would be the only was that the signing would be viable for Inter, but they will work to convince the Rossoblu on a deal should Vecino leave next month.
