Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi will render his final decision on whether or not to include Alessandro Bastoni in the Napoli trip on Saturday morning.
The 24-year-old sustained a calf injury during his stay in the Italy camp a couple of weeks ago.
The defender had to miss the Azzurri’s last two Euro 2024 qualifiers against North Macedonia and Ukraine.
He also skipped last weekend’s major Serie A clash against Juventus in Turin which ended 1-1.
Moreover, earlier reports suggested that Bastoni will certainly miss this Sunday’s showdown against Napoli.
However, Sky Sport Italia (via FcInterNews) claims that the Italian is still in line for a potential call-up.
The source reveals that Bastoni trained with his teammates on Friday, indicating that the player has overcome his injury.
Thus, the report believes that the medical staff will assess the player on Saturday morning before deciding on whether to include him or not for the southern trip.

Nevertheless, Sky notes that the club remains cautious on this front as the calf can be a delicate area. They are determined to avoid a relapse.
Hence, the Nerazzurri might well decide to delay the player’s return till next weekend’s home encounter against Udinese.
The source also offers updates on Benjamin Pavard’s condition.
The former Bayern Munich man has been out of action since sustaining a knee injury against Atalanta last month.
However, the 27-year-old has now removed the kneecap and will be able to train with his teammates after 15 days.
