The agent of Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez has confirmed that there are talks with Inter Milan for the player’s signature.

The 27-year-old’s representative Pablo Bentancur spoke to Uruguayn news outlet Crave Deportiva, via FCInter1908.

Inter have already targeted former Boca Juniors midfielder Nandez in the past.

There was a fairly lengthy transfer saga between the Nerazzurri and the Cagliari midfielder in the summer of 2021.

Nandez had showed under then-Rossoblu coach that he was capable of playing at wingback.

This had marked the Uruguayan out as a possible target to replace Achraf Hakimi. Replacing the Moroccan was one of Inter’s major priorities that summer.

In the end, however, the Nerazzurri moved for Denzel Dumfries instead. The Dutchman arrived from PSV to replace Hakimi.

That ended Inter’s interest in Nandez at the time.

The Uruguayan stayed at Cagliari.

Nandez remained in Sardinia even following the Rossoblu’s relegation to Serie B. He helped them come straight back up last season, and has been a fixture in the starting eleven this season under Claudio Ranieri.

Recent reports have suggested that Inter could be ready to resume their interest in Nandez, however.

There could even be a swap deal on the cards.

Young Inter attacking midfielder Gaetano Oristanio is currently on loan at Cagliari. He could stay in Sardinia as part of a deal to bring Nandez to the Nerazzurri, the report suggests.

And the player’s representative has confirmed that there are in fact some negotiations regarding a possible move.

“We’re in ongoing negotiations with Inter,” Bentancur said. “Who want Nandez.”

“His contract with Cagliari expires in June 2024, and we have already received several calls.”

He said that “One was from Inter.”

“Now the important thing is for him to fully recover. He played the most recent match with Uruguay with some muscle problems.”

“But he will certainly be a big name on the market in the next transfer window,” the agent said of Nandez.
