Monza CEO Adriano Galliani feels that Inter Milan target Carlos Augusto is ready to join a big club.
Speaking to reporters, as reported by FCInterNews, the Brianzoli executive opened up about the future of the 24-year-old Nerazzurr-linked wingback.
Monza wingback Augusto is a player who has come onto Inter’s radar in a big way.
The Brazilian had an outstanding first season in Serie A last campaign. He scored six goals and assisted five as Monza managed an impressive midtable finish in their first ever season in the Italian top flight.
Augusto cemented his role on the left of the Brianzoli’s 3-5-2 system under coach Raffaele Palladino.
This could also make the Brazilian the perfect option on the left of Inter’s team. Under Simone Inzaghi, the Nerazzurri have played with a similar 3-5-2 formation.
Having wingbacks capable of scoring goals is a key aspect of Inzaghi’s shape.

If Augusto were to arrive at Inter, it would be as a replacement for Robin Gosens.
The German could leave the Nerazzurri this summer.
If Gosens does leave Inter this summer, the Nerazzurri will certainly want to sign a like-for-like replacement.
A player capable of deputizing and providing competition for Federico Dimarco will be vital for squad depth.
And all reports point to Augusto being Inter’s main target to replace Gosens.
Asked about the 24-year-old’s future, Galliani said that “At the moment there are no negotiations in progress for him.”
“I think he deserves to go to a big club, because he’s one of the best fullbacks in Europe,” he added.
As for whether there are any talks for Augusto, Galliani joked that “If there’s one thing that football doesn’t lack it’s talking. But it takes a lot to go from talking to a deal happening.”
