Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu has been named the best player in Serie A for the 2023/24 campaign.

The 30-year-old enjoyed a sensational campaign, acting as the linchpin at the very heart of Simone Inzaghi’s team which went on to win the Serie A title by a landslide.

The Nerazzurri sealed the Scudetto title with five rounds to spare after beating AC Milan.

The Italian manager repackaged the Turkish star in a new role as a deep-lying playmaker. This seemed to be a bizarre move at first given how the player used to play in a more advanced role.

Nevertheless, this move paid dividends, with Calhanoglu now cementing himself as one of the best Registas on the planet.

The former AC Milan star will now be looking to guide the Turkish national team in the European championship. And if you’re planning to watch the action in person, follow the link to find the best guide on how to get tickets to Euro 2024.

But before he heads to Germany, Calhanoglu will collect some individual accolades following his exceptional campaign.

For instance, The Athletic named him the best player in Serie A this season. The 30-year-old scored 13 goals (with the majority coming from the spot) and provided three assists in 31 league appearances.

The famous online publication recognized Hakan’s importance to the cause by giving him the nod ahead of other deserving Inter stars.

Nevertheless, the Best XI Lineup included three other Nerazzurri players. Naturally, Lautaro Martinez is leading the line.

The Argentine roasted the competition in the Serie A goal-scoring charts. Despite a recent drought, he already has 24 strikes to his name, seven more than his closest chaser, Dusan Vlahovic.

Bologna star Joshua Zirkzee joins Lautaro upfront at the expense of Marcus Thuram. The Dutchman had a sensational campaign as well, leading the Rossoblu’s charge towards a historic Champions League qualification.

The 22-year-old is also being linked with some of the biggest clubs in Italy, including Inter.

Moreover, the Nerazzurri have two representatives in the backline. Alessandro Bastoni gets the nod following another solid campaign at Appiano Gentile.

For his part, Federico Dimarco is the natural choice for the left-back slot. The four-man defense also includes Bologna rising star Riccardo Calafiori and Torino stalwart Alessandro Buongiorno.

The other stars who made the cut are Roma’s Paulo Dybala, Atalanta’s Teun Koopmeiners and Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson.
