Inter Milan are reportedly looking to sign Atalanta ace Robin Gosens to solve the left-wing back position as per the report in Italian outlet Calciomercato.
The 27-year-old joined La Dea back in 2017 from Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo. The Germany international quickly became an integral part of Gian Piero Gasperini’s system at the Gewiss Stadium, scoring 24 goals and 17 assists in 118 Serie A appearances over the past few campaigns.
According to Calciomercato, Gosens is high on the wishlist of Inter manager Simone Inzaghi. However, it will not be easy for the Nerazzurri to land the German at the San Siro stadium as Atalanta will want a big fee for their star man who has three years remaining in his current contract.
La Dea’s strong approach did not put off the reigning Serie A champions’ hierarchy to pursue their target as they believe the 27-year-old is the right man to repair the left flanks. Ivan Perisic is currently filling that void but Inzaghi’s side are not eager to give the Croat a new contract whose current contract will expire at the end of this season.
Inter eyeing a move for Atalanta defender Robin Gosens:
Signing Gosens in January or next summer will be a great purchase for Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri are struggling to find a proper defender who can play as a left-wing-back position. And the German international could solve the problem for years to come.
The attacking-minded wing-back has already showcased his ability in the opposition box. And the 27-year-old can provide more goal-threat for Inzaghi’s side. However, the defender has established himself as one of the most important parts of Gasperini’s system. And it will be hard for Inter to lure the German to Milan.
Meanwhile, after a disappointing start to the season for Atalanta. They will be looking to find their form as quickly as possible. La Dea are currently sitting tenth with four points in three matches. After the top sides have started the season in a blistering manner. It will be tough for Gasperini’s side to catch up with them if they continue their poor run.
