Ezequiel Schelotto’s agent is in “active” talks with Southampton, but “we have to wait for Inter” in the Dani Osvaldo switch.
The winger, who had loan spells at Parma and Sassuolo, is set to join the Saints on loan in exchange for striker Osvaldo to San Siro.
Saphir Taider and even Hugo Campagnaro could also be heading to Southampton on loan.
“We are waiting for the negotiations to progress,” agent Bruno Carpeggiani told FCInter1908.
“Yesterday I met with Vigorelli, who is acting as an intermediary for Southampton, and I can say the situation is active.
“However, it’s difficult for me to say right now if the move will be concluded tomorrow or if in the end nothing will come of it, because we have to wait for Inter.”
Schelotto’s representative admits he is not happy at being shuffled off on loan by Inter yet again.
“Ezequiel is a good lad and I must say after the last season I didn’t think we’d be in such a difficult position.
“We got ahead of ourselves with Parma, but unfortunately if they cannot sell first then they can’t bring anyone else in.
“The player is certainly training well at Inter and it’s not like last pre-season.”
