Inter captain Samir Handanovic looks to be edging closer and closer to agreeing a new deal with the Nerazzurri that will take him past the summer.

This according to Italian news outlet, who report that progress could be made in the talks with the 37-year-old during or just after the international break.

Handanovic sees his current deal expire at the end of June, but the club are ready to offer him an extension for two more seasons.

The club will not offer an extension on the same wages that the Slovenian currently earns, €3.5 million net per season, but are nevertheless prepared to offer a two-year deal.

Crucial to convincing the captain to stay on have been assurances that even with the arrival of Andre Onana from Ajax on a free transfer in the summer, he will nevertheless still have the opportunity to fight for the starting spot in goal.
