Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi had attempted to bring Lazio striker Ciro Immobile to Inter Milan during the summer transfer window.
This according to yesterday’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInter1908.
Immobile’s situation at Lazio currently looks more precarious than it has for some time.
After having looked settled in the Italian capital for the past couple seasons under Maurizio Sarri, there are rumblings of change.
Immobile had stayed at Lazio during the summer. He reportedly rejected interest from clubs in the Saudi Pro League in order to do so.
But after all that, it is now looking as though a departure could be on the cards.
Immobile has not hidden the fact that he has felt hurt by some criticism from fans of the Biancocelesti.
And the 33-year-old has even suggested that he’s no longer so certain about his aim of spending the rest of his career at the Stadio Olimpico.
Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Tried To Bring Ciro Immobile In During The Summer
With Immobile’s future now in question, the Corriere notes that there have been some links between the Italian international striker and Inter.
A big part of the reason for this is the relationship between Immobile and Nerazzurri coach Inzaghi.
The 47-year-old coach had worked with Immobile for several seasons at Lazio.
And the pair enjoyed good form together.
Immobile’s goals were a key part of the Biancocelesti’s rise under Inzaghi.
And in turn, the striker looked at his best playing in the coach’s system.
Therefore, the Corriere report, Inzaghi had already floated the idea of bringing Immobile during the summer.
However, it simply didn’t prove to be feasible. Immobile stayed at Lazio, whilst Inter made other attacking signings.
Nevertheless, the Corriere suggests, this could hint at Inter reviving their interest in Immobile next summer.
