Simone Inzaghi is already hard at work designing his Inter side for next season, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As per Gazzetta.it, Inzaghi would not be pleased to lose Lautaro Martinez in the summer but it is potentially the departure that would inconvenience him the least.
Whereas Antonio Conte played a traditional 3-5-2 with Lautaro alongside Romelu Lukaku, Inzaghi could opt for a 3-5-1-1 with two creative players behind Lukaku.
The ideal profiles for these roles, the report argued, would be Christian Eriksen and Rodrigo de Paul, who remains a transfer target for Inter.
Eriksen and De Paul would help Inzaghi play a high-paced style of football with constant movement and triangle patterns in attack, with lots of through balls to Lukaku in behind.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto performed a similar role for Ciro Immobile at Lazio, helping the Italy striker surpass the 20-goal mark in Serie A during four of the last five seasons.
