Out of 288 crosses, only 61 met their mark. This statistic, from WhoScored.com, perfectly summaries Antonio Candreva’s season. To make matters worse for the Nerazzurri winger, having made 36 appearances for a total of 2563 minutes, he also failed to score a goal.
It can be argued that his lack of contribution was the reason Inter were not able to secure Champions League qualification before the Lazio match. It’s also given Spalletti and Inter the perfect reason to go shopping for a new right winger this Summer.
The Nerazzurri may of reached their target of finishing fourth for this season but that cannot become the norm at a club like Inter. Therefore, it must be considered imperative that he’s upgraded on and given Inter’s financial situation, it’s likely they will look to sell him too, hopefully for around €15 million. Yann Karamoh will be able to help with the heavier fixture list, given his impressive displays during his debut season.
