Inter Confident Struggling Fullback Will Bounce Back

Inter considered partying ways with Robin Gosens, but they are now set to keep him in January, giving him another chance to prove his worth. He has failed to live up to expectations since transferring to Milan due to previous injuries and precarious conditioning.

Per Tuttomercatoweb, the German fullback has been excellent in practice and the friendlies during the World Cup stoppage. Simone Inzaghi is ready to hand him more minutes and to alternate him with Federico Dimarco more often.

Gosens joined Inter in a €25M move from Atalanta in early 2021, even though he would be unavailable for a while due to multiple thigh stains. The Nerazzurri brought him in early as they feared they could lose Ivan Perisic, which indeed happened in the summer.

On the other hand, the 28-year-old never recaptured his best form, and the younger teammates proved more effective. He has collected 18 appearances this season, but he has started just 4 times. The lack of playing time cost him the opportunity to go to Qatar with Germany.

La Beneamata searched for suitors that could onboard him in a somewhat permanent move. However, Bayer Leverkusen, Leicester City, Wolfsburg, and Schalke 04 offered to sign him on loan, at most with an option to buy. Only a large bid, which doesn’t seem to be on the horizon, could shake things up at this point.

Our Take on Inter and Gosens

The change of direction probably comes from the fact that the Nerazzurri were left lukewarm by the proposals and because they couldn’t find a good replacement without spending a lot. His permanence is the simplest and cheapest solution, but he’ll have to prove that he’s back to his Atalanta self in real games.
