Inter Milan and Benjamin Pavard are both in a hurry to complete the imminent transfer from Bayern Munich, setting their sights on the away fixture against Cagliari.

The Nerazzurri are on the verge of finalizing the transfer of the 27-year-old in what could be one of the best coups of the summer.

The French defender would effectively replace Milan Skriniar on the right side of Simone Inzaghi’s three-man defense. The Slovakian joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.

But according to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the Beneamata and Pavard are both impatiently awaiting the transfer, especially the club.

As the source explains, Inzaghi could be facing a shortage of options at the back ahead of the Sardinian trip.

After beating Monza 2-0 at home in the opening round, Inter will travel to Cagliari for the second matchday of the Serie A campaign.

The Inter manager has some headaches at the back, as Francesco Acerbi and Matteo Darmian are both doubtful. Both players are now training separately from the group.

Inter Milan And Benjamin Pavard Are Looking To Finalize The Transfer As Soon As Possible; The Club Want Him Available For Cagliari

The former Lazio defender missed the opening fixture with a muscular fatigue sustained 15 days ago.

For his part, Darmian suffered a slight ankle knock. The club put him on a light schedule as a precautionary measure.

Therefore, the arrival of Pavard would boost Inzaghi’s host for the away fixture. Luckily for the Nerazzurri, the match takes place on Monday. This gives them additional time to integrate the Bayern defender into the squad.

Nevertheless, the management must put the deal over the line as soon as possible. Otherwise, the 2018 World Cup winner would likely end up skipping the trip to Sardinia.
