It is being widely reported that Inter are engaged in deep discussion to sign Portuguese right back Cedric Soares of Southampton already in January. Due to numerous injuries and relapses that Sime Vrsaljko has suffered in the first 6-7 months at Inter, the club has decided to protect itself by finding a replacement. You can make an argument that without Vrsaljko, the right back position is our weakest link in this team, by far.
According to Sky, it is Luciano Spalletti that asks for a reinforcement in this position. Inter are working hard to please their coach, with the intention to close for Soares in the next 24-48 hours.
