Four players will look to take the opportunity to cement themselves in the plans of new Inter manager Simone Inzaghi by taking the opportunity to impress the Italian during pre-season training.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the likes of Roberto Gagliardini, Samir Handanovic, Matteo Darmian, and Samir Handanovic are among the players who will look to catch the new head coach’s eye at the pre-season training camp starting this week.

Gagliardini arrived at the club from Atalanta midway through the 2016-17 season and it was hoped that he would make himself an important player.

Despite consistency and reliability the 27-year-old has not yet fully lived up to expectations in an Inter shirt, and he will hope to carve out a major role for himself under Inzaghi, who is thought to have been interested in bringing him to Lazio in the past.

Handanovic, meanwhile, will hope to earn a contract extension until 2023, with the Slovenian having shown having shown some of his most error-prone form last season despite winning his first Scudetto, and he will hope that Inzaghi sees in him a player with plenty left to contribute rather than one past his best.

Darmian arrived last summer as a player who can cover both wide roles, and played an important role in the Scudetto win, but with the arrivals of both left- and right-sided players thought to be priorities the Italian will hope that he can still offer a major contribution and can compete for the role on his preferred right side after the departure of Achraf Hakimi.

Federico Dimarco returns to Inter from a loan spell with Hellas Verona, and he will hope to impress and become a part of the new head coach’s thinking on the left side, with the player having been at the Nerazzurri since 2004.
