Inter Reject Wolfsburg Bid for Robin Gosens

Wolfsburg’s initial bid to sign Inter outcast Robin Gosens has encountered a firm denial from the Champions League runners-up. According to Sky Sports Deutschland, via FCInter1908, the Nerazzurri have deemed the Germans’ opening €14 million insufficient. 

After Union Berlin pulled the plug on Gosens’ pursuit, Wolfsburg are the only viable candidates to sign the out-of-sorts Inter left-back. However, their ambition to bring the 28-year-old back to his homeland lacks financial backing. 

Indeed, a season-long loan with a mandatory buyout option set at €14m is not a formula that would convince Inter to sell. While the Italians consider offloading the ex-Atalanta man, they’re reluctant to accept such a significant capital loss. 

Less than three years ago, Inter paid Atalanta around €27m to take Gosens to Giuseppe Meazza. It looked like a wise choice at the time, but the German has flopped. He spent most of last season as a benchwarmer, with Federico Dimarco nailing down a starting berth. 

As much as Inter would like to get rid of Gosens’ salary, his price tag continues to be a roadblock. There’s hardly a universe where the Nerazzurri could recoup their investment. So they may have to lower their demands. 

Gosens is also open to leaving for his own sake. With Euro 2024 on the horizon, he needs regular playing time to increase the odds of making Hansi Flick’s squad for next summer’s tournament.
