Inter Milan Add Zuniga To Shopping List

"Smell my finger!" "I'm not falling for that crap again, Walter." - Marco Luzzani

With former manager Walter Mazzarri apparently not content trying to poach one of the players he coached at Napoli, now he's reportedly interested in bringing Camilo Zuniga in to his squad.

Inter Milan have already been making efforts to poach Valon Behrami away from Napoli, something that likely won't upset too many fans. Now, though, ex Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri is trying to get his hands on a potentially more important Napoli player, according to a report from Sky Sports Italia.

With Javier Zanetti retiring, Inter have a need for a new wing back, and we already know that Mazzarri trusts Zuniga at the position. He was one of Mazzarri's first signings at Napoli, and was a regular in the lineup when healthy as Napoli rose to prominence again.

Now, after a season lost to a knee injury that just refused to get better, Zuniga's place in Rafa Benitez' side is in question. His usual place at left back was taken by Faouzi Ghoulam while he was sidelined, and right back will likely be held down by Christian Maggio for at least one more season.

While Zuniga offers a quality of depth that would be hard to beat, it might make a certain degree of sense to move him on, especially if Inter are willing to meet his €35 million release clause. That's unlikely, but a deal for something more than Zuniga's Barcelona-specific release clause (rumored to be around €15 million) could be seen as reasonable for Napoli to let the Colombian international go.

A deal seems unlikely, but within the realm of possibility. Without a regular starting place, this will only be the first of what should likely be a long series of rumors linking his departure.
