Marco Andreolli’s agent has confirmed that the player is set to re-join former club Inter.
The defender originally joined the club’s youth team from Padova, but departed in 2007 for Serie A rivals Roma and then moved to Chievo in 2010.
However, Andreolli now looks set to re-join Inter upon the expiry of his Chievo contract in June.
“He’ll probably sign a four-year deal (at Inter),” his agent, Patrick Bastianelli, told Sport Italia.
Bastianelli also suggested that there would be no problem should Walter Mazzarri replace Andrea Stramaccioni as Inter manager.
Mazzarri confirmed that he would be leaving Napoli last week, and speculation has mounted that he could replace Stramaccioni as Inter coach.
“Is he liked by Mazzarri? Yes,” Bastianelli added.
“Napoli have made enquiries for him in the past, once when his Roma contract was coming to an end and then his Chievo one.
“If Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon made those moves then it is clear that he would have been wanted by Mazzarri.
“But that is water under the bridge. Andreolli is about to return to Inter and he is very happy about that.”
