The 29-year-old defender has a contract until the end of next season but his future at Inter has come under the scanner ahead of the winter transfer window.

 

Newcastle have reportedly been offered a chance to sign the Dutchman in January and the Magpies are intrigued by the possibility of signing him.

 

 

De Vrij was massive in Inter’s march to the Serie A title last season and has been playing a key role in their quest to defend their title this term.

 

And according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.com, getting him signed on a new contract is still a priority for Inter this season.

 

 

The Nerazzurri do not want to lose one of their most influential players in the middle of the campaign.

 

The Serie A giants are also looking at other defensive targets but they are also pushing to agree on a new contract with the Dutchman as well.

 

 

They are hopeful that they will be able to work out an agreement with the defender’s agent Mino Raiola over a new deal in the coming months.

 

It remains to be seen whether Newcastle table a big offer for him in the winter transfer window in order to tempt Inter into selling him.
