Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi is hoping to make his return from injury against Bologna and earn an Italy call-up.
The 24-year-old sustained a slight strain in last week’s defeat against his former club Sassuolo.
The midfielder had to skip last weekend’s trip to Salerno and the midweek Champions League clash against Benfica.
While the Nerazzurri emerged victorious on both occasions, Simone Inzaghi would certainly like to have the summer signing back at his disposal this weekend.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Frattesi is making significant progress on the path towards full recovery.
Between today and tomorrow, the manager will decide whether to include the player in his matchday squad against Bologna or leave him out. The encounter will ensue at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

If Frattesi were to take the pitch against the Rossoblu, he would certainly receive a call-up for the Italian national team.
But even if he stays on the bench, Azzurri manager Luciano Spalletti could call him up anyway.
The midfielder was the main protagonist in Italy’s most recent Euro 2024 fixture. His brace secured a vital 2-1 victory over Ukraine at the San Siro.
Last summer, Frattesi completed a loan move with an obligation to buy from Sassuolo to Inter. He’s slowly cementing himself as an important rotation option in Inzaghi’s plans.
