In Davide Frattesi’s future lies Inter, which will give the decisive impetus to the negotiations with Sassuolo. The general agreement was reached with the formula of the loan with a purchase commitment of 25 million euros plus the price of mulattieri of 8. In the next few hours, another reinforcement for Simone Inzaghi could be official, with the manager seeing that the void left by Brozovic’s move to Al-Nassr has been filled. That will arguably be the case from a tactical point of view as well, as Frattesi in the left midfielder role is a strong candidate for a starting shirt alongside Calhanoglu and Barella.

How would the interaction look like?

Essentially, then, the structure would remain virtually the same, with a five-man line down the middle of the field, complemented by full-backs Dimarco and Dumfries. The characteristics of the Frattesi, on the other hand, differ from those of the Croats. While the latter had bigger tasks in the first half, the now-ex-Sassuolo specializes in throw-ins and knows how to reward throw-ins from his team-mates near the penalty area. Qualities that could make Inzaghi reconsider his interpretation of the offensive phase a bit, without forgetting Mkhitaryan, who was able to adapt well to the coach’s desires despite having played more advanced.


One of the aspects that should be given more consideration is Frattesi’s ability to be at his best on both left and right flanks and this could also guarantee a stronger rotation that also involves Barella, which often being forced to work overtime. In addition, Nicolò is also a role model for Davide. “For me he is the best in Italy in his position. I have the opportunity to study him closely and he is certainly a source of inspiration for me because he also provides assists,” he said after retiring from the national team. Overall, his 7 goals scored in the league and his prowess as a preventive goalscorer (lost-to-steal ratio this year was 1:3.5, 44:153) confirm a potential signing of absolute value.
