Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan and AS Roma are on track to complete a swap which would include winger Matteo Politano and wing-back Leonardo Spinazzola changing their respective clubs in the January transfer window.
The contact was first established by the Rome-based club right after a serious injury to star midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo who has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
For this purpose
, Roma’s hierarchy have identified Politano as a perfect fit for the rest of the campaign and he is a player who is deemed surplus by Inter’s manager Antonio Conte.
In the negotiations, Inter have asked for Spinazzola in return as the Milan-based club are eager to bolster their full-back department for the rest of the campaign.
As things stand, both parties are willing to conclude the deal which would see both players change their clubs and the negotiations are expected to continue on Tuesday as well.
However, it will be interesting to see what will happen to Manchester United’s Ashley Young if Inter will be able to sign Spinazzola in the ongoing transfer window.
Former AC Milan winger Fabio Borini has officially joined fellow Italian side Hellas Verona, according to an official announcement from the Veneto club.
The 28-year-old forward has signed a 6-month contract with the club and will wear the number 16 shirt. The player only made two appearances for the Rossoneri this season, both in August for a total of 70 minutes. Last season Borini also struggled to maintain a consistent form with the club, scoring three goals and providing one assist in 29 appearances.
