Inter want to sign Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo in the summer so that he can offer more rest time to Nicolo Barella, according to a report in the Italian media today.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport today, Inter staff are very aware that Nicolo Barella is struggling to maintain his form and fitness levels as there is no clear backup for him in the squad.
This is the role that young Italian midfielder Davide Frattesi would play if he were to join the Nerazzurri in the summer transfer window.
Inter want to focus on Nicolo Barella’s fitness over the rest of the season and work out what amount of games for him in a season will bring the best out of him.
Simone Inzaghi has no choice but to keep playing the former Cagliari man from the start of each game if he is not injured as there is not enough quality in depth.
