Inzaghi Keen on Acerbi But His Tips Have Been Mixed

While Inter are tracking Trevoh Chalobah and Manuel Akanji, Francesco Acerbi is waiting for them, hoping to reunite with Simone Inzaghi. The Nerazzurri and Lazio are in advanced talks for a loan spell, although the former have other priorities.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport points out, it would be the third acquisition suggested by the coach. The results of the first two have been suspect. The gaffer was a big proponent of Joaquin Correa, who has had an up-and-down and injury-filled first season in Milan, tallying 7 goals and 2 assists in 38 appearances. La Beneamata spent €30M to onboard him. He will be a backup in 2022/2023.

The second one was Felipe Caicedo, who joined on loan from Genoa last January. He has featured in just 3 matches for a total of 20 minutes. According to Calciomercato, Acerbi is ready to give up €400k, his wages in July and August, to facilitate the move to Inter and work under Simone Inzaghi again. However, the Nerazzurri don’t want to pay a fee for the temporary spell.

While fans are opposing the move online, Curva Nord issued a statement saying they weren’t trying to put pressure on the management. While the talks with Chelsea for Chalobah continue, they face competition from their crosstown rivals. Milan are trying to set up a loan with option to buy as well, Sky reports. RB Leipzig are also seriously interested.

Our Take on Inter, Acerbi, and Inzaghi

Coaches meddling with the transfer market works better in the lower leagues. In some occasions, it can even be a poor look for the front office. It appears that the Nerazzurri will try to avoid this signing until there are no alternatives, but they face uphill climbs for other targets.
