Stefan De Vrij agrees to sign a new deal this week

Simone Inzaghi is happy to keep the former Lazio defender. He managed him at Lazio for a couple of seasons as well and knows his qualities. Inter and the Italian manager had a meeting on the transfer strategy and plans going forward. De Vrij will face some competition from Acerbi and might not start regularly. The Nerazzurri are planning to sign a defender as Skriniar’s replacement. So the competition in the backline will further increase.

De Vrij is still a key part of Inter’s squad for the next season. The Dutch defender has made 203 appearances for the Nerazzurri and is a Serie A veteran. He is excellent in building out from the back and brilliant in winning the aerial duels. However, he has lost some pace, but his defensive awareness helps him to be at the right place at the right time.
