Former Nerazzurri target Mateo Retegui will hope that he can come back to haunt Inter Milan for Genoa on Monday.

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.

As Tuttosport note, Retegui will face a very tough test in Monday’s trip to the San Siro with Genoa.

Strikers have found Inter to be a very formidable opponent this season. That is of course true of attacking teams in general – but especially centre-forwards.

The lack of service that Number Nines tend to receive playing against Inter, combined with the marking of Stefan de Vrij and Francesco Acerbi, has convinced most Serie A marksman very quiet.

Four central strikers in total have found the back of the net against Inter in the league this season.

Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee, Atalanta’s Gianluca Scamacca, Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic, and Hellas Verona’s Thomas Henry.

Otherwise, players in the position have struggled.

Mateo Retegui Aiming To Make Inter Regret Not Signing Him In Genoa Clash

Retegui could be the player who has what it takes to be the next centre-forward to score against Inter, though.

The 24-year-old’s physicality, finishing, and instincts in the penalty area have made him an effective marksman for Genoa this season.

So far in the campaign, Retegui has scored a total of eight goals for the Grifone.

Genoa were the team to bring Retegui to Italy from Argentine side Tigre.

But Inter had been among the striker’s suitors.

Retegui was in truly blazing form with Tigre last season. This earned him a call-up to the Italian national team, and the transfer interest of most of the big clubs in Serie A.

Inter were among these.

But in the end, the Nerazzurri went a different route in the transfer market last summer.

Retegui could get a little extra satisfaction if he is to give them reason to regret that.
