Reports in Italy claim the club met with the player’s agents, and surprisingly a move could be in the offing.

Following 2 successive defeats against Cagliari and Fiorentina and a 2-2 draw against Napoli, has seen Inter Milan dropping points and falling down in the standings of the Italian League, Serie A.
Inter Milan is a club that does not hesitate in sacking their coaches with the former manager Rafael Benitez not lasting 6 months as the coach of the Italian club being an ideal example of just how fast the officials of Inter Milan are in removing a manager who is unable to push the club into the top spots of the league.
Not too long ago, Cagliari defeated Inter Milan with an overwhelming scoreboard of 4-1 in the home grounds of Inter Milan at the Giuseppe Meazza. Cagliari is a club that is struggling just to stay above the relegation zone but still managed to convincingly destroy the defensive structure implanted by Walter Mazzarri.
Things will only get even more difficult for Inter Milan and Walter Mazzarri as his upcoming fixtures of October and November includes matches against: Sampdoria, Ac.Milan and As.Roma.
Those opponents are located in the top 5 section of the Italian League and will be a huge test for Inter Milan and Walter Mazzarri. The future of the Italian manager could be in risk depending on the results that Inter Milan manages to obtain in the remaining fixtures of this year.
Walter Mazzarri was brought into Inter Milan to replace Andrea Stramaccioni who was sacked after 14 months in charge of the club and only being able to clinch the 9th spot in the Italian League.
Besides the Serie A, Inter Milan is also competing in the Europa League and as long as Inter Milan is able to make a serious charge for the major trophy then Mazzarri’s managerial position in the club is safe but if the Italian club is unable on neither claiming a top position in Serie A or making a genuine march for the European title, Mazzarri could very well be sacked.
Inter Milan began their new season with yet another disappointing result after a 0-0 draw with Torino. Under pressure manager Walter Mazzarri signed a new contract extension during the off-season, which raised a lot of eyebrows given that the former Napoli manager oversaw a terrible finish to the campaign. After signing players like Nemanja Vidic over the course of the summer, there were reasons to be confident about Inter Milan returning back to the top three of the Italian Serie A. However, the season began in poor fashion after Inter failed to convert their chances and draw the match against Torino.
There was even a danger of the home team taking the lead in the match but Inter’s goalkeeper Samir Handanovic made an excellent save from the penalty taken by Marcelo Larrondo. A goal for Torino would have changed the landscape of the match and it would have also raised doubts about Mazzarri’s future as the Inter manager. It has been a few years since the club were last seen in the Champions League. Without the £ 30 million+ revenue from this competition, Inter may not be able to sustain having top players like Vidic in their ranks.
Mazzarri will be hoping to get the team to their first win of the season when they host Sassuolo at the San Siro after the international break. “It was a balanced and difficult game, which we knew it was going to be, as it’s never easy to play in Turin where they sit back and wait for you. We tried to win right to the end, but didn’t take our chances. Gary Medel was making his debut and did very well. Overall we played well and it’ll be tough for everyone here,” said the former Napoli boss, who has also expressed his interest to bring in a few players on deadline day.
