Inter bet it all on Tonali

Inter are increasingly focusing their transfer attention on to Brescia talent Sandro Tonali, aiming to create an all-Italian midfield for a generation.

The Nerazzurri have emerged as the favourites for the 20-year-old, who is also tracked by Juventus, Milan, Manchester United and Barcelona.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Tonali is considered the absolute priority for Antonio Conte’s squad, as he’d form the basis for the Italy midfield of the future with current Inter stars Nicolò Barella and Stefano Sensi.

Arsenal told to forget Barella

Inter have reportedly told Arsenal to forget about even starting negotiations for Italy midfielder Nicolò Barella.

According to FCInterNews.it, an initial approach was made from the Premier League side and immediately rebuffed in no uncertain terms.

Arsenal had already been in the running for Barella when he left Cagliari last summer in a deal worth €37m.

It was spread out, so technically a loan for €12m with obligation to buy in July 2020 for a further €25m, plus bonuses.

The importance of being Brozovic

It’s difficult to gauge just how much Marcelo Brozovic brings to this Inter midfield until they have to do without him, argues Tommaso Adami.

The first time Marcelo Brozovic set foot at San Siro was on November 16, 2014, when Croatia played Antonio Conte's Italy in the fourth match of the 2016 European Championship qualifiers. Marcelo, who was turning 22 that day, was then a promising midfielder at Dinamo Zagreb. Little did he he know that, only two months later, that very stadium would become his home and, five years down the line, the opposition's manager would coach him at Inter, making him the pre-eminent midfield pawn in his title-challenging side.
