Inter Milan goalkeeper Yann Sommer may well recover in time to feature in Monday’s Serie A clash against Empoli.

The Nerazzurri will resume their campaign following the international break by hosting the Tuscans at San Siro.

Simone Inzaghi’s men will be looking to maintain, or perhaps even extend, their 14-point gap on top of the standings.

However, the international break often bears unwanted news on the injury front, and this time, it was no exception for the Nerazzurri.

The club’s first-choice goalkeeper Sommer sustained an ankle knock during his time with Switzerland.

This left the club sweating over his availability in the club’s upcoming fixtures.

But luckily for Inter, the 35-year-old could shake off this injury scare in minimal time.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInterNews, the former Bayern Munich shot-stopper trained separately yesterday as the ankle pain is almost gone.

Hence, the custodian is on his way towards full recovery and should receive a call-up for the Empoli clash.

Inter Milan Goalkeeper Yann Sommer Could Start Vs Empoli

Therefore, Simone Inzaghi will have to decide whether to give Sommer the nod or instead trust Emil Audero with a starting berth.

On another note, the Inter players will definitely miss the match.

Although his return is edging ever closer, Juan Cuadrado remains out for now.

The goes for Marko Arnautovic and Stefan de Vrij. The latter returned injured from international duty.

On the contrary, Stefano Sensi and Carlos Augusto should be in the squad after recovering from their respective injuries.


The Italian midfielder has yet to make an appearance since his botched transfer to Leicester City in January.
