Ausilio: 'No De Vrij or Lautaro deals'

Inter director Piero Ausilio is ready to face Napoli, but remains tight-lipped on Stefan de Vrij and Lautaro Martinez deals.

It kicks off at 19.45 GMT, click here for the line-ups and Liveblog.

“We must look only at ourselves and our own results, focus on getting points, regardless of who is in front or behind us,” the director of sport told Mediaset Premium.

“We have an objective and we will try to achieve it. Luciano Spalletti is fired up with adrenaline and eager to do well. The team is following him, I see that every day in training, so there are no worries on that score.”

Ausilio was asked if he already had a deal in place with Lazio defender De Vrij, who is a free agent in June.
“I cannot confirm something like that. I can only talk about Inter and our players.”

What of Lautaro Martinez, as Racing Club have said that the 20-year-old striker is heading to San Siro next season. Are they not close to him?

“It depends on what you mean by close. We made steps forward in recent months. It’s not an operation that we have defined yet, but we have laid the foundations to do something going forward.”
