Inter Milan star Alessandro Bastoni is reportedly at risk of skipping the upcoming encounter against Udinese due to a slight knock.

The Nerazzurri will travel to Friuli this weekend to take on the Zebrette at the Blue Energy Stadium on Monday night.

Simone Inzaghi’s men will be eager to collect three points on the road that would render them closer to their imminent league triumph. They are currently leading the Serie A charts with a 14-point gap separating them from AC Milan.

Nevertheless, the manager might have to do without the services of a key defender.

According to Sky Sport Italia via FcInter1908, Bastoni didn’t train with the group on Friday. This is due to a slight strain in the flexor.

Nevertheless, the source expects the Italian to rejoin his teammates in training either tomorrow or on Sunday.

Eventually, Inzaghi will evaluate his condition. The coach will then decide whether to add him to the traveling party or keep him at home.

As we reported earlier today, Bastoni is in the Nerazzurri’s probable starting lineup. The source tipped him to join Francesco Acerbi and Benjamin Pavard at the back.

However, it remains to be seen if he will recover in time for Monday’s clash.

Alessandro Bastoni Could Miss Udinese Vs Inter Milan Encounter With A Slight Injury

The 24-year-old’s absence could cause a headache for Inzaghi, as Stefan de Vrij also missed today’s group training.

The Dutch defender returned from international duty with an injury but he’s now on the cusp of making his return.

Expect for the two defenders, Sky notes that the Inter manager had a full squad under his disposal on Friday’s training session.
