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: Since the last Nerazzurri loan update, Icardi has played four games and scored four goals and tallied two assists in that time. He played just 26 minutes against Le Mans and made no impact but scored one and assisted one in the game that followed against Amiens.
He then put in arguably his best performance to date in a PSG shirt as he scored a hat-trick and grabbed an assist in a 6-1 win over St Etienne. He was unable to score or assist in Monday night’s 3-3 draw with Monaco though.
Total stats (all competitions): 20 appearances, 17 goals, 4 assists.
Ivan Perisic – Bayern Munich: Perisic started and finished both of Bayern’s wins over Freiburg and most recently Wolfsburg but was unable to make any goal contributions. His dribbling in the past two games has been particularly impressive with him succeeding in 8 of his 11 dribble attempts.
Total stats (all competitions): 20 appearances, 4 goals, 5 assists.
Radja Nainggolan – Cagliari: Nainggolan, like Perisic above, has played every minute of Cagliari’s matches since the last Nerazzurri loan update. The Belgian midfielder failed to make any goal contributions and failed to stop his side from losing all three, which took their losing run to four games.
Nainggolan also played 90 minutes in the Coppa Italia clash against Inter yesterday losing 4-1, but failed to get on the scoresheet but got close when hitting the post.
Total stats (all competitions): 18 appearances, 4 goals, 5 assists.
Dalbert – Fiorentina: Dalbert played in all of La Viola’s recent matches against Roma, Bologna and SPAL respectively but failed to make any real impact of sorts with him poor defensively and also poor when he was going forward.
Total stats (all competitions): 19 appearances, 4 assists.
Joao Mario – Lokomotiv Moscow: The Russian Premier League is currently on its winter break and therefore Joao Mario has not played for some time when you take into consideration his injury. His last appearance came back on November 10 in a 1-1 draw with Krasnodar.
Total stats (all competitions): 12 appearances, 1 goal, 4 assists.
Ionut Andrei Radu – Genoa: Inter put four past him when the sides met just before the winter break and he looks to have lost his place in the team for the league due to the arrival of Mattia Perin.
Perin’s arrival has cast serious doubt over Radu’s future with the Rossoblu with reports suggesting Inter could recall him. He did play the full Coppa Italia match against Torino a few days ago, a match that Torino won after penalties.
Total stats (all competitions): 19 appearances, 37 conceded, 2 clean sheet.
Andrea Pinamonti – Genoa: Pinamonti played 71 minutes in the 4-0 loss to Inter but made very little of an impact. For the third game running and fourth time in five games, he failed to register a shot on target. He had a pass accuracy of just 69% and had zero dribble or cross attempts.
Total stats (all competitions): 17 appearances, 4 goals, 3 assists.
Yann Karamoh – Parma: Karamoh is still out due to the injury which he sustained during the 1-1 draw with Fiorentina back at the beginning of November. It is still unclear as to when he might make a return to action.
Total stats (all competitions): 6 appearances, 1 goal, 1 assist
