    Summer Mercato 2015 - DM (Defensive Midfielder)

    So, since I'm extremely frustrated with our Management lately, the Mercato Team specifically, I've found that a good way to get rid of some of the frustration is doing whatever possible like if they would actually read/listen to what is posted here on FIF. It's like "I did all I could, now it's up to them" feeling.

    And since I love stats, I gathered all the information that I think would be useful (besides actually watching them play of course) to get an idea of the players we should be following.

    In my opinion, there are 3 positions we absolutely have to reinforce this Transfer Window (Summer Mercato 2015), in order of importance DM > SS/WF > FB. So, right here in this thread I'm beginning with the DMs (Defensive Midfielders) we should be looking after, maybe later I'll proceed with the other two.

    I've watched all the players included here in at least 5 matches this season, and they're ordered from what I think would be the best transfer, considering all the variables (Price, Age, Current Level, Ceiling, etc.), and not really from best to worst or from most to least favourite. My favorite is Casemiro, then Krychowiak and Kramer around the same.

    By the way, I included Allan even though he's playing almost every game as a CM, because if we're after him and Touré, I guess we'll put him in the DM slot. Also, I included Medel for comparison.

    If there is some interesting DMs you have being watched this season that you think Inter Management should be following too, you could mention him here, if possible add some comments, perhaps a video that helps to get an idea how he plays; and maybe I could add his stats here if they're available.


    Edit: So, apparently we're linked with Kondogbia, which I didn't bother to put here previously since Monaco paid €20M for the wonderkid just 2 years ago, and they're rich so I don't see them selling him for any remotely sane price. Hell, I think even Gonalons would be easier to get.

    I also added Song and Suárez (whom I think is barely any better than Medel), and the young players Crisetig and Darder, whom may not be on the same level as others, but they're young so we could gamble on them, actually we should just gamble on Crisetig since we already own him and it makes no since to get Darder since he's at around the same level as Crisetig and just one year younger.

    To be honest I would be perfectly happy with getting one of Casemiro, Kondogbia, Krychowiak or Kramer, and bringing back Crisetig instead of getting Thiago Motta. Of course this is never gonna happen since our Management is a bunch of morons.

    I also corrected some errors, especially in the Possession section, which I made a mess with.



    Edit 2: I added the the Stats with only Average per game because it's better to compare different players, and then, the Stats with both Total for the season and (Average per game).



    Edit 3: I updated the images to include the final round of the season for the leagues that finished last week. I removed the Stats with both Total for the season and (Average per game), but included a link to an Excel (.xlsx) file, that allows you to sort by column for easier comparison between all players.

    We are only linked to Allan tho. Why not just offer Khedira what ever he wants and a guaranteed starting spot: spend no money and give him higher wages. Fine Juve want him and are a more attractive team but he might eat bench there

    Sounds shitty but it's a way to get great players. We should be back in champions next season with the right reinforcements. Just sell them on our plan

    are we even linked to any of those guys? im not defending medel because he hasnt been good lately but in this current inter it is really difficult to see who is tbh. maybe in a better team medel would step up his level aswell. for the bigger part of the season he has been solid to be fair. its not because rano keeps making brainfarts medel is automatically to blame like so many fanboys want to believe.

    mario suarez could maybe be the solution but then again i dont think our cdm is the first guy we need to replace in this shitty team. our defensive 4 are a mess and we desperately need reinforcement for palacio and guarin aswell.

    valdifiori seems like a good idea.

    Don't know a lot about Valdifiori, but he isn't the same kind of DM as these guys right, he's more the playmaker kind, like a Thiago Motta, he's nowhere at the level of this guys, to be honest I'd rather keep Medel starting than getting Valdifiori, we already have enough mediocre-average players already.

    The level Medel has shown this season overall is pretty much the norm for him, he's an average player and he always be an average player, he doesn't have the tools to improve substantially, of course in a better team he would look better as would everyone else, even Guarín.

    Though, I think as rotation player Medel should be more than good enough, also if we were to play him besides a more intelligent DM in a "doble cinco" we could solve all our defensives problems, because Medel is like a rabid dog that follows the ball everywhere but it's too dumb to cover spaces and that's why he's always leaving us exposed.

    And what has Ranocchia to do with Medel playing awful lately, I've no idea, specially since Medel rarely is ever covering for anyone else like he should since he's our DM, and is instead leaving spaces open and failing with stupid unnecessary tackles, allowing our opponents getting through our midfield like butter.

    I didn't make this with the intention of only putting the players we're linked with, in fact it's the opposite, since our Management is so incompetent, I'm posting here the players we should be following, not necessarily the ones we're actually following. So far Kondogbia is the only great target we've been linked with, Allan is so-so, but it could be worse. Of course adding the players we're actually linked with is very useful for comparison.

    Kranevitter plays for River Plate and there's no data available of Argentina's Primera División.

    I added the the Stats with only Average per game because it's better to compare different players. Here it is anyways, the totals for the season are still in the first post of the thread.
