Signing Edin Dzeko actually went against one of Inter’s key objectives for the summer transfer window but Simone Inzaghi insisted on buying the Bosnian, according to a report in the Italian media.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are committing themselves to making the average of the squad much younger than it currently is.

This is why new contracts are being offered to the likes of Nicolo Barella, Lautaro Martinez, and Alessandro Bastoni.

Similarly the likes of Aleksandar Kolarov, Danilo D’Ambrosio, and Andrea Ranocchia are unlikely to be kept beyond 2022.

This commitment was tested though when Romelu Lukaku left the club because Inter had to act fast to make sure they had enough quality strikers for the new campaign.

Simone Inzaghi made it clear that he wanted Edin Dzeko, and the club decided that the player is good enough to go along with the manager’s wishes.
