Villarreal to consider Ranocchia

Villarreal might turn to Inter’s Andrea Ranocchia to solve their defensive problems, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The 30-year-old centre-back has been linked with a possible departure from Giuseppe Meazza for a long while now. He joined Inter from Genoa in January 2011, and he has made a total of 188 appearances for the Nerazzuri since then. However, he has hardly played under manager Luciano Spalletti, who currently prefers the duo of Stefan de Vrij and Milan Škriniar in the heart of defence.

A number of clubs have been credited with interest in Ranocchia, but at the moment it seems the most serious competition Villarreal would face for his signature would come from Sassuolo, who are also in strong need of defensive reinforcements.

The Spanish club are currently focusing mainly on wrapping up a deal to bring in Vicente Iborra from Leicester City, and once they get that over the line, they will turn their thoughts on whether to move in for Ranocchia.
