Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin believes that Inter have had a strong summer transfer window despite the financial restrictions and significant departures.
Writing in his column for Tuttomercatoweb.com, the journalist gives a positive review of the way in which the Nerazzurri conducted their summer business as we approach the deadline and the slamming shut of the transfer window.
Inter’s financial problems heading into the summer were well-known, and after Antonio Conte left the club braced themselves for the departure of Achraf Hakimi before also losing star striker Romelu Lukaku.
Many observers felt that these losses would be enough to significantly weaken the team ahead of the season now underway, but the summer business that was done to replace all of the major departures was in the end sufficient to see the club get off to a strong start without last season’s top scorer and Scudetto-winning head coach.
Biasin notes this, writing that “The Italian champion Inter, after two months of media massacre and apocalyptic scenarios, got off to a great start and look somehow more composed than thy did under Antonio Conte.”
He attributes this to the quality of their summer business, which he states was “Excellent, especially given the premises. Okay, perhaps Inzaghi has a weaker squad in his hands than the one that won, but maybe not by that much either.”
