Five Players That Inter Should Sell in This Transfer Market Summer

When Inter fans were enjoying the Scudetto ceremony two weeks ago, very few of them expected that a storm was about to hit Appiano Gentile. Antonio Conte did it again, quitting his club few days after the end of the season, apparently unhappy with the management’s austerity policy amidst the financial crisis. Even though his replacement, Simone Inzaghi, is expected to deploy a similar tactical lineup, the Nerazzurri still have work to do on the market in order to renovate the squad before it’s too late.

So let’s take a look at the five players who must leave Inter during the summer transfer market.

Aleksandar Kolarov (Left-Back)

When the former Lazio and Roma man landed in Milano, he was expected to play a key role in Conte’s tactical scheme. However, it just never happened for the Serbian veteran.

At the age of 35, he seems to lack the needed energy to go up and down the flank as your typical wingback, whilst his experience as a part of the back-three was a failure.

With Inzaghi expecting to maintain the 3-5-2 lineup, the freekick specialist better find himself a more suitable side to spend the remaining years of his career.

Arturo Vidal (Central Midfielder)

The Chilean is pretty much on the same boat with Kolarov. The former Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona star arrived to Inter last season as a favorite of Conte.

Whilst the former manager immediately threw him into the fold, it was obvious that the young Bianconero enforcer who was a dominant force in Serie A is long gone.

After playing with four European giants – and amassing a host of league titles in the process – perhaps it’s time for Arturo to embark into a less challenging adventure.

Marcelo Brozovic (Central Midfielder)

Arguably the most controversial selection on the list. During Conte’s tenure, the Croatian acted as the lynchpin in midfield, and was almost irreplaceable. So why should they sell him?

First of all, if the reports indicating that the Italian champions need to raise money by selling some of their players are to be believed, then the midfielder could be one those to be sacrificed in order to keep the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.

Second of all, the 28-year-old’s contract expires next summer, and he might just refuse to sign a renewal, which means that Inter could lose one of their most important assets in midfield for free.

Ivan Perisic (Winger)

Our second Croatian on the list. The former Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund star is vastly experienced, and last season, he made himself adapt to the wingback role in order to gain a starting berth.

Nonetheless, it must be said that the 32-year-old remains first and foremost an attacking winger, and if he still has few good years remaining in the tank, then he better spend them playing in his most natural position.

As for the Beneamata, they should replace him a with more traditional left wingback – preferably a younger one – even if replicating the Achraf Hakimi transfer would be unlikely in the current financial status.

Alexis Sanchez (Forward)

Although the Chilean is far from being the world class striker who terrorized Premier League defenses during his Arsenal days, he remains a decent option on the bench.

But at the age of 32 – and more than three years past his peak – the future doesn’t seem too bright for the former Udinese and Barcelona man.

Inter need to reinforce their attacking department, by brining in someone who can push for a starting berth, and act as a viable replacement for Lukaku and Martinez whenever one of them is missing.
