Inter could go all out for Udinese’s €30m-rated Destiny Udogie rather than spend on defence, Italian media suggest
Inter could decide to prioritize a move for Udinese winger Destiny Udogie over spending on a player to bolster their defence.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan newspaper Libero, which suggests the Nerazzurri may decide to move for the 19-year-old to add quality at left-back as he is more of a problematic position than any of the defensive roles. .
Robin Gosens is set to start the season as Inter’s first-choice left-back, taking over from Ivan Perisic as was planned when he signed from Atalanta in the January transfer window.
However, the German has had injury problems which make it unclear if he can be a consistent option on the left, while Libero suggests he doesn’t quite match Perisic’s profile.
Meanwhile, as long as Milan Skriniar remains at the club, there will be little doubt about the quality of the three Inter starters who will remain the same as last season.
As a result, going all-in on a top-class left option like Udogie, which would likely cost around €30m, might make more sense strategically for the Nerazzurri than spending that money on strengthening the defence.
