He needs to come on loan and take a paycut. Specially as there is no growth decree (needs to be 2 year period without paying taxes in Italy for it to apply).

A Calhanoglu-Barella-Kessie midfield trio would lack in creativity big time. Even if we have decided to move on from Brozovic Kessie isn't the right type of player for our midfield imo.

We already have an issue as there's no one in attack to create on his own. Let's not make it even worse. Grinta doesn't unblock tight defences.

Depends. Say we get a creative outlet on the wings, say Guerreiro... ideally we would creative elements across all positions but beggars can't be chosers.

We kinda already have a creative player in the wings in Dimarco. Not enough. We need to add a creative player either in midfield or attack. I'd go for Kamada, Aouar or even Dahoud over Kessie.

I know. They would even sign Roberto Pereyra before considering any of these guys. But it's ok. We shouldn't take risks with players from abroad. Better go for safe bets like Lukaku and Correa.

Just put me out of my misery and sign Gags to another extension. :palm: He's got the vaulted Serie A experience, with the added traits of being useless and stealing money.

You would bring one of those names to start for Inter?

IMO we need more size there to control it properly. We need more physicality. Creativity is maybe for cases to unlock busses parked to the box.

All this is said with the assumption Gagliardini and Brozo/Calha are out.

+1. In the current financial state, club needs to sign talented young players on a free. Probably lower wage as well.

However, directors may consider that Barcelona are desperate enough to offload Kessie due to his high wage. If they really get a decent offer for Brozovic, they are probably doing it.
I can already envision them saying "Kessie is proven in Serie A and has chemistry with Hakan ".
Tuttosh1t wrote that if Brozovoic is sold, Inter will revisit their interest in Valencia’s Yunus Musah.

Roberto Pereyra most probable Gagliardini upgrade on a free. Expecting him to be signed.

+1 for Pereyra

20 matches, 2 goals, 6 assists

Perfect age for Inter, 32 y.o

It's not like Kessie would add less creativity than Mikitarian which is currently playing that role

Can we get Rodrigo DP? He is creative and eats a lot of ground, similar to Brozo.

Pereyra has mostly played as a right wingback this season. Game against Inter was one of the rare occasions where he played in midfield.
