Inter Milan summer signing Davy Klaassen could make his full debut against Salernitana, replacing Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The 30-year-old joined the club on deadline day after rescinding his contract with Ajax. He signed for the Nerazzurri as a free agent.
The Dutchman finally made his debut for the Italian giants in the final minutes of Wednesday’s contest against Sassuolo. His short cameo changed little in the final outcome, with the Beneamata suffering their first defeat of the season.
But according to FcInter1908, Klaassen could receive a more prominent chance to showcase his worth this weekend. The source gives him a slight advantage over Mkhitaryan to start against Salernitana on Saturday at the Arechi Stadium.
The Netherlands’ star introduction would give the former Arsenal and Roma man a breather. The Armenian has thus far started in every match this season.
Klaassen would thus join Nicolo Barella and Hakan Calhanoglu in the middle of the park. Meanwhile, Davide Frattesi joins Juan Cuadrado on the sidelines after sustaining a muscle strain.

Elsewhere, Benjamin Pavard should make his third start of the season, lining up alongside Francesco Acerbi and Stefan de Vrij at the back.
As for the wingback slots, Denzel Dumfries will maintain his spot on the right side. On the opposite flank, Carlos Augusto should get the opportunity to start instead of Federico Dimarco.
Finally, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi will most probably unleash the attacking duo of Marcus Thuram and Alexis Sanchez, while resting his captain Lautaro Martinez.
Inter Probable XI (3-5-2): Sommer; Pavard, de Vrij, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Klaassen, Augusto; Sanchez, Thuram
