Edin Dzeko has made a substantial impact at Inter since his arrival from Roma in the summer for a nominal fee, and has allowed the Nerazzurri to remain competitive at the top of Serie A despite a difficult summer transfer market.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight the major goalscoring contribution that the Bosnian has had despite having cost the club little apart from his wages, and argue that his signing was a coup over rivals Juventus.

Dzeko had been a long-term target for both the Nerazzurri and Bianconeri before this summer, but it was the shock sale of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea which prompted the Nerazzurri to act and bring the player in from Roma.

The 35-year-old will earn a net of €5.5 million on average over his two year contract at the club, while the Giallorossi are set to be owed a fee of €1.5 million in the event that the Nerazzurri qualify for the Champions League.

For this price, the Nerazzurri have gotten a striker who has found the back of the net six times in his first seven times, the first player to manage this feat since Ronaldo in the 1997-98 season, and one more goal than Lukaku had scored at this point last season.

Additionally, major Serie A rivals Juventus could have revived their interest in Dzeko as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo had they been aware that the Portuguese was destined to leave earlier in the window.

However, the Nerazzurri beat the Bianconeri to his signing, and in the end not only brought in a highly useful player to their difficult transition away from Lukaku, but also deprived a significant rival of the player’s services.
