Inter Milan have had a “summer revolution” in the transfer market, tailoring the squad to the vision of coach Simone Inzaghi.

This is the view in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper suggests that now the coach can have a serious run at the Serie A title.

This summer, Inter have hit double digits in terms of both departures and new signings.

A whopping twelve players from last season’s senior squad are out the door. And in their place have come eleven new arrivals, plus the return of Stefano Sensi.

Obviously, there is no question that this will be a much different-looking Inter team than last season.

What is less certain is exactly how the changes will affect the team.

Inter Milan Tailor “Summer Revolution” To Vision Of Simone Inzaghi

In the view of the Gazzetta, there has been an underlying plan driving all Inter’s signings this summer.

The arrivals of Davide Frattesi in midfield and Marcus Thuram in particular have given the Nerazzurri a more direct bent compared to Marcelo Brozovic and Edin Dzeko last season.

Both of the pair have a tendency to move the team up the pitch quickly.

In Frattesi’s case, the 23-year-old’s acceleration with and without the ball, and the timing of his runs, mean that his instincts are to try and move the ball from back to front, and raid into the box to try and get on the end of chances or create a dangerous numerical overload.

Meanwhile, Thuram shares former Inter striker Dzeko’s predilection for dropping deep on the pitch.

However, unlike the Bosnian, Thuram doesn’t look to use an eye for a pass or lay-off to create passing combinations. Rather, the Frenchman’s big attribute is his deft dribbling to escape pressure.

Both of these players’ styles are a sign of how Inter will want to play this season.

In Inzaghi’s first two seasons, the coach has focused on a possession-based style of play. Inter have looked more methodical than his Lazio teams virtually ever did.

But this season, things could look a bit different.

New signings allow the Nerazzurri to play more directly than ever.

In the view of the Gazzetta, this raises the question – should Inzaghi now have Inter pushing for the title?

The coach came close in his first season. Then last time around, the Nerazzurri’s title pursuit was a damp squib compared to the heroics of champions Napoli.

Now, the Gazzetta argues, Inzaghi has everything he needs. It’s time for Inter to show their hunger and their quality to win the Scudetto.
