Inter are around the middle of Serie A for the amount of players used in their squad being non-Italian, with the Nerazzurri ranked eighth in the league.
This according to a report by CIES Football Observatory, via FCInterNews, which analyzes the minutes played by foreign players in squads across top five European leagues and finds that the Nerazzurri’s 71.2% is the eighth most in the Italian top flight.
Inter rely on a number of Italian players among their regular starting elevens, including the likes of Nicolo Barella, Alessandro Bastoni, Federico Dimarco, and Matteo Darmian.
However, the majority of the Nerazzurri’s squad is still composed of players from outside of Italy, as is the case with many top clubs.
Serie A side Udinese top the rankings for both Serie A and the top five European leagues, with 88% of the Friuli-based club’s player usage going to non-Italian clubs, while Atalanta sit third in the overall list behind Premier League side Chelsea.
The Nerazzurri’s use of non-Italian players mean that they rely on foreign players more than city rivals less than city rivals AC Milan whose rate is 74.3%, but more than Juventus who come in at 65.8%.
