Inter’s all-around game has improved with Edin Dzeko in the side in place of Romelu Lukaku, according to Italian media.

This from today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that the Nerazzurri have looked less predictable with the Bosnian in the side and that his qualities help bring teammates into play more.

Inter lost a significant contributor with the blockbuster sale of Lukaku to Chelsea in the summer, with the Belgian having led the team for both goals and assists on the way to the Scudetto crown.

However, the club acted fast to bring in Dzeko to replace him, and the 35-year-old offers a completely different style of play than Lukaku did.

While less agile and dynamic as an individual striker than the Belgian, Dzeko is able to hold onto the ball and find teammates with his array of passing.

This has changed the game of the entire team, with midfielder Nicolo Barella taking on a more attacking role while summer signing Hakan Calhanoglu has grown as an influence in possession.

This Inter team are starting to fully take on a new and recognizable identity, which gives them the capacity to control matches and create danger from a number of sources, and the arrival of Dzeko is at the heart of this transformation.
