Inter coach Simone Inzaghi is experimenting with 3-4-1-2 and 3-4-2-1 formations in preparation for next season, both of which could be very well-suited to the arrival of Paulo Dybala.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the coach is beginning to focus on systems of play with a more prominent role for attacking playmakers.
In the Nerazzurri’s first training match of the system, Inzaghi tested out a 3-4-1-2 formation with Joaquin Correa playing in the hole behind Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku, a role which Dybala could also conceivably be used in.
Meanwhile, the coach has also been thinking about a 3-4-2-1 system as an option, which could see Dybala play on the right and one of Hakan Calhanoglu or Hnerikh Mkhitaryan used as attacking midfielders on the left in support of a lone striker.
In either of these systems, midfielder Kristjan Asllani could play in a two-man midfield with Marcelo Brovovic, which would have the added benefit of giving Nicolo Barella a rest in some games.
