Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar is hoping to receive the go-ahead today to play against Torino in Serie A.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 28-year-old will undergo medical assessments today which should determine whether or not he’ll be cleared to play in the Nerazzurri’s final league match of the season.
It is looking more and more likely that Skriniar will be fit before the end of the season.
Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi confirmed as much in a press conference on Tuesday.
The coach stated that the Slovakian will undergo a medical consultation today. According to Inzaghi, it is a possibility that Skriniar can play in the final two matches of the Nerazzurri’s season.
This is a different prognosis from what had been thought when Skriniar initially received lumbar spine surgery.
The initial forecast was that the former Sampdoria defender would in all likelihood miss the entire rest of the season recovering. At the very least, it was suggested, he would be out until the Champions League final.

Yesterday, however, it was reported that Skriniar’s target is to be available in the squad for the final league match of the season against Torino.
It is certainly not likely that the Slovakian would be fit enough to be in the starting eleven.
However, if Skriniar can come off the bench, it would put some vital playing time in his legs ahead of the Champions League. Nerazzurri coach Inzaghi will be keen to have the defender back as fit as possible as he approaches the biggest match of Inter’s season.
Moreover, Skriniar could receive something of a send-off from Inter fans in the league.
In any event, it should be known whether the 28-year-old will be fit to face the Granata after today’s medical assessments.
Tuttosport report that the tests will take place at a clinic in Merignac, France.
