Edin Dzeko could be a hugely important player for Inter this season, with the Bosnian’s availability in the squad likely to play a role in the overall team strength.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who praise the striker for his display against Genoa over the weekend which came only days after completing the switch from his former club Roma.

Dzeko came in as part of the Nerazzurri’s plan to rebuild their attack following the departure of Romelu Lukaku, and as the Gazzetta point out, he could be a highly reliable option around which to build the attacking style of play in the short to medium term.

At age 35 the Bosnian is not a player for the future, and his contributions will have to come immediately, but if manager Simone Inzaghi can get the best out of him over the rest of the season, then he could be a highly effective signing around which to build life after Lukaku.
