Federico Dimarco could have a role in Inter’s starting lineup next season after his impressive displays in pre-season.

This is the claim of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who wrote about the 23-year-old in yesterday’s print edition, and in their analysis the left-sided defender could emerge as not only a rotation piece but a regular starter in Simone Inzaghi’s plans for the Nerazzurri next season.

Dimarco returned to Inter from a loan spell with Hellas Verona, where he had impressed playing under Gialloblu manager Ivan Juric, and his future was uncertain with multiple clubs interested in him but the Nerazzurri also considering holding onto him.

Given the player’s improvements while playing at Verona, he has already been seen as a viable option to play a role on the left, with the Nerazzurri requiring both a left-wing-back to take the place of the departed Ashley Young and a backup to Alessandro Bastoni on the left side of a back three, both roles which Dimarco is suited for.

However, early in the summer Dimarco was mainly talked about as a rotation option to fill out the squad in positions where depth is lacking, but perhaps he could be worth even more than this to the club, according to the Turin-based paper:

“It is often said that you must take advantage of your opportunities. With the sale of Young and the late arrival of Perisic, the boy who grew up in the club’s nursery and became a ‘footballer’ in the Juric school in Verona, seems ready to make a decisive leap at Inter.”

“His left foot is cultured,” the paper continues, “and we knew this, but he puts in a shift, times his tackles well, and continuously participates in the buildup . He seems really ready to play a starting role as a wing-back on the left.”
