Report: Inter to keep Nainggolan

Inter reportedly prefer to keep Radja Nainggolan than sign Arturo Vidal from Barcelona this summer.

Nainggolan is due to return to Inter once his loan spell at Cagliari expires, with the Rossoblu not in possession of an option to buy the 32-year-old.

The Nerazzurri appeared to be ready to replace him with Vidal, who continues to drop hints of a reunion with Antonio Conte.

Agent: 'Hamsik happy for Mertens'

Marek Hamsik’s agent says the midfielder is ‘very happy’ Dries Mertens broke Napoli’s goalscoring record and that he could return after he retires.

Hamsik was the highest scorer in Napoli’s history with 122 goals, but he was finally beaten last night by Mertens, whose equaliser against Inter also ensured the Partenopei reached their first Coppa Italia Final since 2014.

“Dries and Marek are close friends,” Juri Venglos told Radio Kiss Kiss.

Coppa Final vindication for Gattuso's Napoli

Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli revival continued by pushing past Inter to reach their first Coppa Italia Final since 2014, writes Kaus Pandey.

When Rino Gattuso replaced Carlo Ancelotti in December, things looked pretty bleak for Napoli, but he has turned their season around and could win silverware by taking them to their first Coppa Italia Final since 2014. Under Don Carlo, the dressing room was fractured and the players were openly rebelling against the club.

On the pitch, they hadn’t won a game in nine outings and were dropping away from European qualification. The defensive midfield issue was exposing the team’s backline on a weekly basis, as they leaked goals.

Dries Mertens has made history, as his goal against Inter this evening allowed him to surpass Marek Hamsik as Napoli’s all-time top scorer.

It is a wonderful way for the 33-year-old Belgian to celebrate his imminent contract extension at the Stadio San Paolo.

Mertens had been on a par with Hamsik after finding the net 121 times in the Partenopei jersey when the lockdown brought football to a halt for three months.
