Super Eagles midfielder, Joel Obi’s name has been left out of the list of players facing departure from Italian side, Inter Milan this transfer window.

Reports in the Italian media on Wednesday  indicated some of the names that the club have highlighted as up for sale.

The Nerazzurri are in a transitional process under new owner Erick Thohir, with the likes of Nemanja Vidic and Yann M’Vila coming in to push the San Siro outfit up the table.

However, Tuttosport have revealed a number of the players the Indonesian businessman and Coach Walter Mazzarri deem as surplus to requirements.

Ricky Alvarez is probably the most high-profile of those, with the paper claiming that a fee of 12m euros could see him leave.

Fredy Guarin is also another on the list, with the club seemingly upset with his protracted, but ultimately fruitless, attempt to move to Juventus in January.

Saphir Taider could be used in a part-exchange deal for Southampton’s Dani Osvaldo, whilst Hugo Campagnaro, Ezequiel Schelotto and Matias Silvestre could all also go.

Obi spent almost all of last season out on loan at Parma, and before that, was out injured, meaning he’s had little playing time at the club.

Inter are hoping to raise at least 30m euros from the sales.
