Valentino Lazaro looks set to rejoin Inter at the end of the season, after a mixed loan spell in Germany with Borussia Monchengladbach, according to reports.


According to a report from Gazzetta.it, Inter were hoping to raise so funds in the summer through the sales of some of their players that are currently out on loan, with many being deemed surplus to requirements.


Lazaro is one of those options, with the Austrian midfielder being out on a season-long loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, with the German side have a buy option for €12 million.


However, the Bundesliga outfit is set to reject the option to make the move permanent, primarily because their funds look set to take a massive hit with them unlikely to qualify for European football for next season.


Marco Rose's side are currently 11 points below fourth place, and a return to UEFA Champions League football is almost impossible.


Gladbach have to also consider that Marco Rose's successor as their manager will want his own crop of players, and thus the 25-year-old looks set to return to Inter.


Last week, Lazaro's agent revealed that the Austrian is set to try to impress Antonio Conte once again, yet there have been no talks with either Inter or Borussia Monchengladbach as of yet.


Lazaro has had a very turbulent time at Monchengladbach, having early highs after a very good start to the season from the club, and then distinct lows with a disastrous run of form from the club over February and March.


Lazaro did relatively well whenever he played, but he also suffered from several muscle injuries, and the highlight of his season so far has been his outrageous stoppage time scorpion kick goal in the 4-3 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen very early on in the season.


Whilst Inter are set to sell the likes of Radja Nainggolan and Joao Mario to their loan clubs, who have both been regulars at Cagliari and Sporting Lisbon respectively, the likes of Lazaro and Dalbert, are both set to rejoin Inter with the view of selling them in the future.


Dalbert has had a very unsuccessful loan spell over in France with Rennes, and whilst they have the option to make the move permanent for €12.5 million, it is very unlikely that they will do so.
