Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi is keen on making the move to Inter Milan this summer rather than AC Milan.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, via FCInterNews, who report that as with Marcus Thuram the 23-year-old leans towards joining the Nerazzurri over their city rivals due to his preference for playing in their tactical setup.
One key reason for the Frenchman’s decision is that he is more inclined to play in a two-striker system. Inter coach Simone Inzaghi’s 3-5-2 setup would afford him this opportunity.
Meanwhile, Milan by comparison would either see Thuram play as a lone striker, or on the wing.
The Gladbach man has settled on Inter as his next destination due to this tactical consideration. The same appears to be a key factor for Sassuolo midfielder Frattesi as well.
Davide Frattesi Wants To Join Inter Rather Than AC Milan For Tactical Reasons
23-year-old Italian international Frattesi has already admitted that he prefers to play in a midfield trio.
This has looked like a major hint that the Azzurri star will choose Inter. Whilst Milan tend to play with a double pivot behind an attacking midfielder, the Nerazzurri utilize a three-man system under Simone Inzaghi, in which all the midfielders are expected to do a bit of everything.
According to La Repubblica, Frattesi is of a similar mind to Thuram. The Italian wants to join Inter due to Inzaghi’s formation.
However, the player looks to already have a preference.
Frattesi has already hinted that he wants his next step to be in Serie A.
This means that, despite interest from Brighton and Hove Albion and Newcastle United in the Premier League, the 23-year-old is unlikely to want to leave the Italian top flight at this stage in his career. Paris Saint-Germain are also reportedly big fans.
