Udinese could play with a “false nine” system in tomorrow’s Serie A match against Inter Milan.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper anticipate that Roberto Pereyra could play in attack alongside Florian Thauvin.

Udinese coach Gabriele Cioffi is considering how to prepare for tomorrow’s match with a considerable selection headache in attack.

Former Marseille and Newcastle United forward Thauvin is available.

There is little doubt that the 2018 World Cup winner will start the match. He has been a key man for Udinese this season.

But Thauvin’s usual strike partner will not be able to start.

This season, Lorenzo Lucca has been Udinese’s point of reference in attack,

The 23-year-old made the move to Friuli from Ajax during the summer transfer window. And he has proven the ideal replacement for Beto in attack.

Lucca’s physicality and strength in the air have given Udinese a target in attack. His holdup play has proven an ideal foil for Thauvin.

But Lucca will be out tomorrow due to suspension.

Cioffi does not exactly have a great deal of options to take the place of Lucca.

There is former Watford striker Isaac Success, who would be a candidate for a starting shirt.

But the other options will not be available. Former Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis is out with injury.

And Brazilian Brenner is only just returning from a trip to his home country.

Therefore, the Gazzetta report, Cioffi could simply play without an out-and-out striker.

Therefore, the newspaper anticipate, versatile midfielder Roberto Pereyra could move into the attack for the Friulani.

The Argentine is capable of playing in central or attacking midfield, at wingback, or as part of a strike pair.

And according to the Gazzetta, Pereyra could be utilized in the latter role against Inter tomorrow.
