Federico Dimarco could play a major role at Inter next season, with the 23-year-old firmly in the plans of head coach Simone Inzaghi.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the manager has been convinced by the player’s displays in training and pre-season and will make a role for him.

Dimarco was not in the first team picture at the Giuseppe Meazza prior to his loan spell with Hellas Verona, but the player has improved his game markedly playing under Verona manager Ivan Juric.

It was not immediately clear how the Nerazzurri would deal with Dimarco’s situation upon his return from loan this summer, with a number of clubs thought to be interested in him

However, new Inter boss Inzaghi values the 23-year-old for his versatility, with the player being able to cover both the left-wing-back and left-sided centre-back position in the Italian tactician’s preferred formation, and the player would like to stay and fight for his place having been an Inter supporter since childhood.
