However, the Uruguayan has only featured in 16 games throughout the Serie A campaign and was left on the bench when Inter drew 3-3 at home to Sassuolo last nigt (Transfermarkt)

Godin recently told Goal, that he has no plans of leaving Inter and admitted that he was surprised to hear of the speculation linking him with a moveaway from the club.

Fenerbahce goalkeeper, Muslera is hopeful that the 34-year-old’s situation will soon improve.

Speaking to Football Italia, he said: “I don’t know exactly what Diego is going through at Inter, but he is clearly worried. He’s a pillar at the national team and needs to play,” goalkeeper Muslera says.

“I’m sure his situation will be resolved shortly.”

In April, Spurs were said to be seriously interested in signing Godin as a replacement for Jan Vertonghen. (Express)

The Belgian defender extended his contract on Monday to play in the final few Premier League games of the campaign but is likely to leave in July with AS Roma interested in bringing him to Italy (Il Messaggero).

We have always cried out for leaders with a winning mentality, and Diego Godin ticks all the boxes. However, the emergence of Eric Dier at centre-back might lead to Jose Mourinho rethinking his transfer strategy.
