Inter have yet to make the decision to sign wingback Raoul Bellanova permanently next summer.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri are still considering whether or not to make the 22-year-old’s loan move from Cagliari permanent for €7 million at the end of the season.

Bellanova is currently on loan at Inter from Cagliari, although his loan deal contains an option to buy him permanently next summer for €7 million.

Unlike Kristjan Asllani, whose loan move automatically becomes permanent once a clause is triggered by the first points that the Nerazzurri get in Serie A in February, there is no mandatory clause in Bellanova’s deal.

Accordingly, the club are still assessing Bellanova’s performances to decide on whether or not to sign him permanently.

The 22-year-old has played just 209 minutes in all competitions this season, behind Denzel Dumfries and Matteo Darmian in the pecking order.

Bellanova is a childhood Inter fan and is hoping to convince the club over the rest of the campaign to sign him permanently next summer.

However, particularly given restrictions on how high the value of the squad that the club can register in the Champions League that have been imposed by UEFA, it will not be a straightforward decision.

Should Inter not make the decision to sign Bellanova permanently from Cagliari, the likes of Fiorentina and Torino would be keen to sign him from the Rossoblu next summer.
