Inter target €20m-rated Biraghi

Inter are targeting Fiorentina left-wing-back Cristiano Biraghi, it’s reported, but the asking price is at least €18-20m.

According to FCInterNews.it, the 26-year-old Italy international has been identified by Antonio Conte and club directors as their ideal reinforcement for the left flank.

He has proved that he can play both in a four-man defence and wide in a 3-5-2 formation, a role that so far Conte has found it difficult to fill, claiming Ivan Perisic doesn’t suit it.

Beppe Marotta confirmed Inter are “seeking two strikers” for Antonio Conte, but “there are economic balances to be respected.”

The former Juventus director general spoke to the media after a summit in China between the Coach and various club chiefs.

Conte hit the headlines with his at times stark and almost insulting treatment of the players no longer in his plans, but Marotta insists that’s nothing new.

Inter scrap Ivan the Terrible

Antonio Conte threw Ivan Perisic on to the increasingly crowded Inter scrapheap, writes Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall.

The message was clear and very strong. Ivan Perisic had no place in Antonio Conte’s new system. The statement from the Inter Coach seemed ill-timed and rather unnecessary, his team had only just really started pre-season, so what motive was behind the outburst? Now the Croatian moves on to the list of players looking to exit this summer, a missive that includes Mauro Icardi, Radja Nainggolan and Borja Valero. Is this wise?

Conte: 'Perisic not suited' to Inter role

Antonio Conte sent shockwaves through Inter by declaring Ivan Perisic “is not suited the role I am asking for, so right now the only place he can play is upfront.”

The move to a 3-5-2 formation is proving a problem for the Croatia international, who today only came off the bench in the second half of their 1-0 defeat to Manchester United.

“We are working, but the responses so far are not positive,” said Conte in his Press conference.

Inter hard-line stance is risky

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall appreciates Inter’s new hard-line disciplinary stance, but it could backfire on Antonio Conte.

Antonio Conte and Beppe Marotta were united, they were clear and what is more they delivered a message. Hard work and discipline were the most important values in this new regime, winning comes second. For the likes of Mauro Icardi and Radja Nainggolan, there was no mincing of words, they were, in no uncertain terms, up for sale. This hard-line approach may seem radical, and it is, especially for Inter. There are reasons behind it, but is it a decision that could come back to haunt them?
