Cagliari interested in Palmeiras left-back Matias Vina

Cagliari are considering a move for Uruguay left-back Matias Vina, Corriere dello Sport reports.

Vina plays for Brazilian giants Palmeiras, having signed from Nacional in January.

AC Milan wanted the 21-year-old before he moved to Brazil and there is new Serie A interest from Cagliari.

Luca Pellegrini and Charalampos Lykogiannis have been rotated at left-back this season, but the futures of both are in doubt.

Pellegrini is on loan from Juventus who Cagliari sold him to for €22m last year before loaning him back.

Cagliari will struggle to arrange another loan for Pellegrini and Lykogiannis, though improved, is not ready to be the starting left-back.

That has taken Cagliari to Brazil with six-cap Uruguay left-back Vina ’emerging overwhelmingly’ as the leading target.

The Isolani already have three Uruguayans – Christian Oliva, Nahitan Nández and Gastón Pereiro – in their first team squad.

And Vina could soon follow in their footsteps if Cagliari firm up their interest with a bid.
