Antonio Conte has spent a lot of resources when recruited several players from the Premier League so far in his first season as Inter’s coach.
The Nerazzurri manager looks set to bring in more players next season as he looks to strengthen his squad and add more depth to the side. Considering he had a fairly successful time at Stamford Bridge and England overall, Conte is now keen on bringing in more recruits from English football.
The Italian is known for his tough training, and rigorous methods of implementing his strategies, both on and off the field. He likes disciplined players, and doesn’t tolerate any unprofessional behaviour such as partying, drinking, as well as activities that can potentially tarnish the image of the club, like for instance, doping.
Doping has caused serious set-backs in so many players’ lives. Such acts are closely monitored by the authorities too, and Antonio Conte being an epitome of discipline, prefers players who are highly professional. Let’s now tell you about some EPL players who could play for Inter next season.
Olivier Giroud From Chelsea
The France international has been heavily linked with Inter ever since Antonio Conte took over. The Chelsea striker’s contract at Stamford Bridge is set to expire at the end of this season and reports suggest that he is willing to shift base to Italy in order to work under his former boss Conte.
The 33-year old World Cup winner is ready to take a pay cut in order to sign for the Serie A club and has come to an agreement with them too. Giroud has been overshadowed by Tammy Abraham this season at Chelsea as Frank Lampard prefers his young guns over the older players. Chelsea had reportedly blocked his move away from Stamford Bridge in the winter transfer window as they wanted Giroud to cover up for Tammy Abraham’s absence after the Chelsea starlet sustained an ankle injury.
Jan Vertonghen From Tottenham Hotspurs
After having spent nearly eight years at Tottenham and having won no trophies, Jan Vertonghen looks set to depart from the London-based club. The former Ajax player has had an impressive time at Tottenham Hotspurs, but with his contract coming to an end he will be a free agent this summer and Conte would be looking to add him to his squad. After having hinted earlier that he wants to learn a new language, his time at Tottenham looks set to end this season.
Victor Moses From Chelsea
The Nigerian national team player might still have a role to play under Antonio Conte as Inter look to finalise a deal for the versatile wing back. The Nerazzurri could make his transfer permanent after having signed him on loan from Chelsea.
The Serie A club has an option to buy him in the clause, but the Italian giants would be hoping for a cut in the asking price of 12 million euros. It’s worth noting that Moses played a key role in Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side that won the Premier League and the FA Cup, and Inter could be looking to make his deal permanent.
