Former Inter defender Daniele Adani feels that Inter must complete the signing of Paulo Dybala as he would be a good fit for the team no matter who he’s paired with in attack.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in yesterday’s print edition, Adani praised the Argentine for being a very well-rounded forward and suggested that there is little that he doesn’t have in his locker.

Dybala looks to be closer than ever to a Nerazzurri move during the summer transfer after his agent met with the club yesterday, and the move would certainly be one of the most high-profile in all of Serie A this summer.

The 28-year-old’s talent is hardly up for debate, although there would be questions arising regarding how well he would fit in with the Nerazzurri tactically speaking.

As far as Adani is concerned, however, there is no reason for these doubts given the quality of the player in question.

“I’ll say it right away,” he said, “there can be no doubt about Paulo Dybala. If Inter have the chance to sign him, they have to sign him.”

“Dybala is one of those few players who know how to do everything,” he continued. “He has the gift of being able to link up, that is to say, playing well and getting his teammates into the game, but at the same time he has pure individual class.”

“He knows how to score goals, make assists,” he added, “he’s a constant threat on set pieces. In short, not just a total attacker, but a total player. He can do anything.”

Adani stated that “Simone Inzaghi, in the season just gone, had an attack with good chemistry at his disposal, with four players of absolute level, but none of them were left-footed.”

“In addition there was Perisic, who was right-sided, but also used his weak foot well, and he was practically another striker,” he added, “despite playing on the wing.”

He suggested that “The Croat has left, and in terms of unpredictability he is an important loss. Dybala is left-footed and he’s not the kind of player you see every day. Just ask Juventus fans.”

On the possibility of a strike partnership of Dybala and Lautaro Martinez, Adani stated that “With those two the defense would have trouble finding their bearings, because both are capable of opening up spaces, being unpredictable, dropping deep to receive the ball.

As for a duo with Romelu Lukaku, he predicted it would be “Different from the one with Lautaro. Probably less reliable, but I think that for Paulo having a centre-forward like Romelu close can also have advantages.”

“Lukaku is a striker who allows you to play the ball vertically very quickly, because he has a lot power, a dominant physique that allows him to bring the team up the pitch just by relying on him,” he explained.
