Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi will reportedly rest Nicolo Barella this weekend against Torino, replacing him with Davide Frattesi.

The 26-year-old returned to Appiano Gentile following the international break. He started for Italy in the 4-0 win over Malta at the San Nicola Stadium in Bari. He remained on the pitch for 65 minutes.

However, the Sardinian appeared tired during the Azzurri’s 1-3 defeat at the hands of England at Wembley, explains La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews.

Therefore, Inzaghi could decide to rest him on Saturday. In this case, the manager is likely to give the nod to Frattesi. The 24-year-old was also a starter in Italy’s disappointing defeat in London on Tuesday.

The former Sassuolo man would thus join Hakan Calhanoglu and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the middle of the park.

The Turkish Regista returns from a positive international break that saw his nation clinch a spot in the Euro 2024 next summer. As for the Armenian veteran, he remained in Milano, recharging his batteries.

Elsewhere, the source expects, Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram to maintain their striking partnership up front.

The report believes the Argentine and Frenchman will spearhead Inzaghi’s lineup in the club’s next three matches.

The Nerazzurri will take on Torino away from home this weekend before hosting RB Salzburg on Tuesday. Then, Inzaghi’s men will host AS Roma and Romelu Lukaku in a heated affair on October 29.
