Inter wingback Robin Gosens is hoping that he can really make his position his own at the Nerazzurri right away next season.
Speaking to German newspaper Rheinische Post in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 27-year-old outlined his ambition for the beginning of the upcoming campaign, his first full season at Inter.
Gosens arrived from Atalanta at the end of the January transfer window to reinforce Inter’s left wing, but in spite of showing some flashes of his talent the German has yet to really show what he’s capable of.
Gosens had to recover from a long-term injury in the early weeks of his Inter tenure and then found himself behind Ivan Perisic in the pecking order, finding the 33-year-old who was one of the Nerazzurri’s outstanding players last season difficult to displace.
However, now with Perisic gone on a free transfer to Tottenham Hotspur, it will be up to Gosens to show that he can replace the Croat ably.
“My goal is to become the starter in my position at Inter,” he said, “that’s why my focus is entirely on the new season. I’m happy to go on vacation after a difficult season, but I can’t wait to start training after not having played much last season.”
