The arrival of Josep Martinez forms a key part of Inter Milan’s plan of giving Simone Inzaghi a “double Inter” with two starters in every position.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

The overall idea of Inter’s transfer window is clear.

The Nerazzurri certainly aren’t aiming for any drastic overhauls like last summer.

Rather, the club’s plan has been to keep the spine of the team that won last season’s Serie A title intact. And then make a few additions here and there to strengthen that core.

Therefore, there have been a few departures, and there will soon be a few arrivals.

And so far, Inter look to have been successful in bringing the level of strength in depth up a couple notches at least.

Josep Martinez Completes “Double Inter Milan”

Inter have already secured two big free transfer signings long ago.

Striker Mehdi Taremi and midfielder Piotr Zielinski will arrive any day now from Porto and Napoli respectively.

That pair take the place of Alexis Sanchez and Davy Klaassen respectively.

Of course there is no guarantee of anything. But on paper the new arrivals should certainly be able to contribute more in the starting eleven than Sanchez and Klaassen had done.

Then in defense, there are already the likes of Yann Bisseck, Stefan de Vrij, and Carlos Augusto who are capable of backing up the starters more than adeptly.

Now, Martinez’s arrival means that it is a similar story in goal.

Out goes Emil Audero, who did a solid job as backup keeper last season but never threatened the place of Yann Sommer. And in comes a player who was one of Serie A’s outstanding keepers last season to replace him.

Inter aren’t necessarily finished, the Gazzetta note.

There is still the situation of Denzel Dumfries to sort out.

And then in attack, it is not yet certain whether Marko Arnautovic will stay or go. Should the Austrian head for the exit door, Inter would aim to move for Albert Gudmundsson.

But with Martinez’s arrival, there is one more big puzzle piece in Inter’s plan for the squad next season.
