Internazionale captain Javier Zanetti is closing in on a first-team return.
Internazionale are set for a boost with news that a number of injured stars are close to regaining match fitness.
Captain Javier Zanetti's recovery from a leg injury is almost complete as he is expected to feature for the Inter reserves against Udinese on Saturday.
The Argentinian international has not played for Inter since pulling the abductor muscle in his right leg during the Serie A curtain raiser against Treviso on August 28, and Saturday's game will be his second within seven days.
Sinisa Mihajlovic, who received specialist treatment for backache, has also resumed training with the first team and is another player who will turn out for the Nerazzurri's second string.
Fellow defender Marco Andreolli also trained on Friday and should be available for selection in the near future.
