Joel Obi will almost certainly still be a part of the first team squad at Inter next season, his agent has stated.
The Nigerian, 20, has been paired with a possible summer move to Napoli, but that seems unlikely to happen at this stage.
“I don’t know anything about a deal between Napoli and Inter for Joel,” representative Renzo Contratto told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“I think there is a 99 per cent chance that Obi will remain in Milan. The Nerazzurri believe in youngsters like him and I don’t think they’ll sell him.”
Obi, a midfielder, has played in 37 games across all competitions for the Beneamata this term. He’s scored just one goal for the club.
