Inter’s signing of Paulo Dybala on a free transfer could allow the team to play with more tactical fluidity next season.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi could switch to a 3-4-2-1 formation with the Argentine, a system which he sometimes used at Lazio.
Inzaghi played exclusively with a back three and wingbacks last season at Inter, and virtually always used a three-man midfield with Marcelo Brozovic flanked by two mezzala/box-to-box midfielders.
In attack, the coach either used an out-and-out strike pair or played one central striker with a player behind him linking the midfield and attack in a 3-5-1-1 system.
These 3-5-2 and 3-5-1-1 formations were the coach’s usual setups when he was in charge of the Biancocelesti, but he did also occasionally use a system with just two central midfielders, and with two more advanced midfielders playing behind a lone striker.
The coach could very well decide to use this 3-4-2-1 system with Dybala playing in the band behind the striker should he wish to experiment once the Argentine arrives.
