Several Inter first team players left on loan during the Summer transfer window and in this SempreInter.com feature, the progress of each player’s spell out on loan will be documented on a week-by-week basis.
Mauro Icardi – Paris Saint Germain: Icardi added to his spectacular goal tally in the French capital as he scored the winning goal in PSG’s 2-1 home win over Brest in Ligue 1. His goal, which came in the 85th minute had an xG rating of 0.58.
Total stats (all competitions): 10 appearances, 9 goals, 1 assist.
Ivan Perisic – Bayern Munich: Perisic made an appearance off the bench as Bayern battered rivals Borussia Dortmund 4-0 at the weekend. Despite being on the pitch for just 15 minutes, he made sure to make his mark as he assisted one of the goals. Other than that he was pretty poor in his cameo.
Total stats (all competitions): 11 appearances, 3 goals, 3 assists.
Radja Nainggolan – Cagliari: Nainggolan was the star of the show as Cagliari picked up a 5-2 win over Fiorentina in Serie A.
It was a vintage performance from the Belgian who grabbed a hat-trick of assists and scored a trademark long range effort – which as superb as it was, is made even more superb by the fact it had just a 0.03 xG rating!
Following the match, he shared his belief that he could have ‘easily’ stayed with Inter this season and made an impact in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
Total stats (all competitions): 10 appearances, 2 goal, 4 assists.
Dalbert – Fiorentina: Dalbert was on the wrath of Nainggolan’s Cagliari. Whilst certainly a day to forget in terms of his defensive efforts, he did provide an assist for the first of La Viola’s two goals that came through young talent Dusan Vlahovic.
Total stats (all competitions): 11 appearances, 4 assists.
Joao Mario – Lokomotiv Moscow: The Portuguese midfielder played the entirety of Lokomotiv’s 1-1 draw in the Russian Premier League with Krasnodar. Whilst he did not score or assist the goal, his passing into the final third was perfect as he managed to find his teammates 8/8 times with passes into that area of the pitch.
Total stats (all competitions): 12 appearances, 1 goal, 4 assists.
Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa – Flamengo: Gabigol failed to score in the 1-0 win over Botafogo but made history by scoring in Flamengo’s 3-1 win over Bahia on Sunday. Gabigol took his tally to 21 goals in the league which matched the record set by Zico for the most goals scored by a Flamengo player in a single league season.
Total stats (all competitions): 51 appearances, 37 goals, 9 assists.
Ionut Andrei Radu – Genoa: Radu kept his second clean sheet of the season as he stopped an out-of-form Napoli from scoring this past weekend. This clean sheet came despite the fact he had an xGc rating of 1.51.
All barring one of the shots he faced came from range but the close range effort he did face was a header, which he done extremely well to save.
Total stats (all competitions): 13 appearances, 27 conceded, 2 clean sheet.
Andrea Pinamonti – Genoa: Pinamonti also played in the goalless draw away to Napoli. There was a big improvement on his last appearance as this time he managed to place two of his shots on target. He also created two shooting opportunities for his teammates.
Total stats (all competitions): 11 appearances, 2 goals, 3 assists.
Yann Karamoh – Parma: The 21-year-old missed Parma’s 2-0 success over Roma having torn his lateral collateral ligament in training in the lead-up to the match. It is as yet unknown when the Frenchman will make a return to action but the injury comes at a time where he was beginning to perform well.
Total stats (all competitions): 6 appearances, 1 goal, 1 assist.
