Patrick Van Aanholt could be an Inter player next summer, with his agent revealing that a free transfer for the player would be possible.

Speaking to FCInterNews, the Dutchman’s agent Michael Jarman spoke about the future of his client, who is set to leave Premier League club Crystal Palce with his deal expiring at the end of the month.

The Nerazzurri have been targeting a left-sided player for Simone Inzaghi’s squad for next season, with the departure of Ashley Young and the possibility of Ivan Perisic also being sold meaning that a reliable option will be needed.

Numerous names have emerged as possible targets for the club, with the Nerazzurri hoping to provide Inzaghi with a quality option while also keeping their financial discipline.

Jarman explains how Van Aanholt could have the right profile for Inter’s demands in this way:

“He is a player who prefers the offensive phase. Very skilled with the ball at his feet, he also knows how to cover the defensive phase, but he is more of a marauding full-back than those who go up and down the wing and create scoring chances.”

He confirms that the 30-year-old would come without a transfer fee attached:

“Yes, he hasn’t renewed [with Crystal Palce], so there is no transfer fee involved.”

Jarman backs his client to make the step up to playing for the Nerazzurri:

“He has often played for the Dutch national team, and the Premier League is certainly one of the most competitive leagues in the world. Patrick would have no problem putting himself to the test in Serie A, in a team like the Nerazzurri.”

“I understand,” he continued when asked about the tactical rigors of Serie A, “but when you play against teams like City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal and so on every week for years, you learn something.”

Jarman did not confirm whether or not Inter have been in talks for the player, but stated:

“I can only confirm that there are some big Italian clubs interested in the player.”

About Serie A he sad that “we’re talking about a top competition,” and that it would be a good destination for the Dutchman.

Finally, he was asked about whether he has talked with Van Aanholt about a possible move, and had this to say:

“Yes sure. Now he wants to relax on vacation. I’ll have to work for him. Let’s see what happens in the next few weeks. Obviously the choice will depend on the project they propose to us.”
