Inter’s midfielder transfer list to widen amidst the midfield crisis in the final Champions League group stage match against Shakhtar. The Nerazzurri played an apparently injured Barella in the starting 11. For a 3rd consecutive time, the Nerazzurri crashed out of the Champions League group stage. Inter don’t seem to find a balance in their midfield for a while now. Inter are going to let go of Christian Eriksen and Radja Nainggolan in the January window. Conte shares a cold relationship with both the players resulting in lesser playing time for the two.
Radja, who has a contract with Inter till 2022, has only made five appearances in all competitions this season. In fact, Conte’s disinterest in the Belgian midfielder is evident. Thus, Radja is likely to move to Sardinia in January. Also, Christian Eriksen’s transfer has been in talks for a while since Conte doesn’t trust the Danish midfielder. Despite him setting the pitch on fire against Shakhtar in the final 8 minutes, Conte won’t play him much. He is one of the best midfielders when he is in form. But in Conte’s system, the Danish midfielder has hardly got the chance to perform. Thus, the move of these two is confirmed in the January window.
Inter’s midfielder transfer list: Who will Inter bring in?
Inter’s midfielder transfer list likely to include Matias Vecino. The Uruguayan footballer is suffering from a long-term knee injury since July and is likely to move to Tottenham. One of Paris Saint-Germain duo Leandro Paredes or Ander Herrera are likely to replace Eriksen. On the other hand, Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka is another possibility. Another man that Inter really love is Rodrigo de Paul of the Udinese. Although Udinese would be hesitant to let go of the midfielder but a deal including Pinamonti can work in Inter’s favour.
The fact that Inter are short of midfielders at the moment is clear. While Conte’s system only allows certain players to secure their position in the squad, Inter are likely to make a considerable number of deals in the upcoming transfer window.
