After signing Pazzini from Sampdoria, Inter are close to make anther deal by signing Cesena’s full back Yuto Nagatomo.
Inter were searching for a left-back for a while now as Cristian Chivu is not a natural left defender and Davide Santos is not at his best form. The Italian youngster is still considered one of the best Italian talents but this season he failed to impress.
Since Mourinho left Inter, Santon played on different positions under Benitez and Leonardo but he disappointed every time.
Nagamoto was one of the best players at Cesena this season and attracted the interest of big clubs from Serie A.
There are rumors that Inter and Cesena already agreed the transfer price and that the Japanese defender will join the Italian gieants before transfer deadline.
The transfer sum is not known yet but it’s almost sure that Santon will leave Inter at least until the summer. There is the possibility to join Cesena on loan as part of the deal. This move would be profitable for both clubs and the player would regain his confidence and fitness. However the player might not want to join Cesena.
Nagatomo started his senior career at FC Tokio were he made 72 appearences before joining Cesena.
