Emerson Palmieri & Federico Dimarco Amongst Names Being Considered By New Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi, Italian Media Suggest
Ahead of his arrival as Inter coach, Simone Inzaghi has already begun planning additions for his squad and will target Chelsea wing-back Emerson Palmieri.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, the former Lazio tactician employs a similar 3-5-2 formation to former Inter coach Antonio Conte and so there is little need for an overhaul.
The left wing-back position is considered an area of priority though, and former Roma defender Emerson is a target, whilst Inter will also consider buying Federico Dimarco back after a loan at Hellas Verona should the Gialloblu take up their option for a permanent deal.
Meanwhile, there are unlikely to be changes in defence, with the only addition being the return of young centre-back Lorenzo Pirola from a loan spell at Monza.
The Nerazzurri may also look to trigger a buy-back clause in the deal that sent Zinho Vanheusden to Standard Liege.
In attack, Inzaghi will focus on Sassuolo’s 21-year-old forward Giacomo Raspadori should Lautaro Martinez depart, as Inter look to take advantage of a strong relationship with the Neroverdi.
